A CLASSIC REIMAGINED
By Octavio Solis
Directed by Sam Woodhouse
The mythic journey taken in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath inspired this 21st century epic story of land and legacy. William Joad, the grandson of Tom Joad from Steinbeck’s novel, is in search of the last surviving descendant of the Joad family to bequeath the family farm in Oklahoma. William is shocked to find this descendant is the Mexican-American man Martín Jodes. The unlikely relatives confront their pasts as they ride to the future on Route 66 from California back to Oklahoma. As they travel the mother road they gather a diverse band of seekers who share their dream to build a new home together on the Joad farm. Playwright Octavio Solis, one of the most prominent Latinx playwrights in our country, shares his powerful story which explores the intersection of people and cultures in America today.
