"The Joad family abandons their farm, fleeing the Dust Bowl in search of a new life. Unrelenting struggle and strife meet them at every turn, testing the limits of the human spirit. Still, they have hope. Winner of the 1990 Tony Award for Best Play, Frank Galati’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize-winning novel follows the Joad’s as they make the rough trek to California, the land of the American Dream. This Depression-era tale of family and human resilience asks, when thousands are without work, is survival a matter of competition or cooperation? Tickets available at or (860) 486-2113
