Synopsis
 

An epic story, with great tragedy and challenge, and explores human desperation and determination.

The Grapes of Wrath tells the powerful story of the Joad family’s trek from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to the promise of a new life in California. They are heading west in their own starving nation, but being treated at every moment like non-resident aliens. Seen by everyone they meet as undesirables, this extended family just wants work, happiness and a small slice of the American Dream. In every community through which they travel they’re viewed as part of a terrifying wave of the needy, a disruption of normal life, something to be repelled en masse. So much has not changed in our world today. One critic reflecting on its continued relevance said: “Steinbeck didn’t want us to lose hope — he wanted us to get angry at those who would strip hope from us”.

An amateur production by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd.
