It's so important for students and adults to be exposed to such great American literature. I'm thankful for educational theatre groups like Phantom Projects who help to bring these works to life.

Description

Written by Frank Galati

Based on the novel by John Steinbeck

Directed by Janet Miller

Desperately proud, but reduced to poverty by the loss of their farm, the Joads pile their few possessions on a battered old truck and head west for California where their waning hopes of finding work and a better life are dealt a final blow by the stark realities of the Great Depression. Holding to the simplicity and directness of the novel, the play uses the sparest of technical means to convey the strength of the human spirit against an uncaring society.
