An epic tale for the 21st century

Inspired by John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, this world-premiere drama by Southern Oregon–based playwright Octavio Solis (El Paso Blue, Gibraltar, Quixote) finds hardworking and hard-living William Joad with no blood kin to inherit the family farm. No one, that is, until he finds an unexpected relation: Martín Jodes—a young Mexican-American man descended from Steinbeck’s protagonist Tom Joad. Directed by Bill Rauch in his last season as artistic director, this powerful story about land, family and survival inventively reverses the Joads’ mythic journey from California back to Oklahoma.
