The Grapes of Wrath: Live Performance Ties Classic Literature to Current Issues

Lively Town Hall-style discussion to follow the reprise Caitlin Shetterly’s adaptation of American classic

The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize winning classic novel, is one of the most challenged and banned books in the U.S.. In it, Steinbeck depicts in spare, beautiful, and chillingly realistic prose, the economic, social, and environmental tragedy that has become known as the American Dust Bowl. On Wednesday, March 25 at 7 p.m. Opera House Arts (OHA) is proud to present a reprise of its successful 2014 live performance of The Grapes of Wrath, alongside a Town Hall-style discussion on the issues of poverty and hunger in the U.S. The presentation is a continuation of OHA’s The Living Room Project series. The show, discussion, and related activities will also be part of a special day-long symposium for high school students at the Opera House on March 24.
