THE GRAPES OF WRATH at Imagination Theatre

by Placerville Newswire / Jan 24, 2018 / comments


Imagination Theater is pleased to announce the 2018 performance of The Grapes of Wrath, Directed by Lanny Langston. 

John Steinbeck's masterpiece tells a gripping story of the Joad family, living the reality of a tragic period in American history. Set during the great depression, and the dust bowl that was ravishing the mid-west, the Joads seek refuge, traveling route 66 along with thousands of "Oakie" families to work the fertile California orchards. Survival is tenuous at all turns and culminates with rain and floods that force the Joads to face the despair head-on. Brilliantly adapted in 1988 for the stage by Frank Galati, Steinbeck's Story of outcast mi-grants proves itself to be an important drama that shows the strength of family and tells a story of survival brilliantly.

The Vision of Director Lanny Langston is, for the first time, to have it actually rain on stage at Imagination Theater. This risky innovation shows once again, this little theater in the foothills goes big to tell a great story.

Performance runs March 2 - March 25, 2018. Tickets can be ordered online through the theater website, or by calling the Box office at 530-642-0404
