The Grapes of Wrath Opens to Rave Reviews

Playing on the STC Main Stage through October 26, The Grapes of Wrath is an epic story of one family’s enduring spirit in the face of incredible hardship. Set during the Great Depression, the play follows the Joads, a family of tenant farmers who are driven from their Oklahoma home to California due to drought, economic hardship, and agricultural changes incited by the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

Marcus Crowder of The Sacramento Bee, giving the production his highest rating of four stars, called it a “handsome production with subtle precision.”

Bev Sykes of The Davis Enterprise said, “STC gives us a powerful production, with all of the emotion of the original book, thanks to a talented cast and the original period-style music.”
