DIT / The Conservatory of Music and Drama present John Steinbeck's

Theatre

THE GRAPES OF WRATH

Dates: 27 Feb - 01 Mar

Show Time: 8.00pm

Tickets: €15 - €12 (Wednesday 26 February - all tickets just €10!)

Steinbeck’s award winning novel, THE GRAPES OF WRATH is faithfully adapted by Frank Galati (of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and winner of a Tony award for best play) and presented by the Graduates of DIT’s BA in Drama (Performance). The DIT graduates, directed by Mark Lambert, infuse this play with energy and enthusiasm, and make full use of their training in movement, dance, singing and acting to present THE GRAPES OF WRATH in a compelling and compassionate production.

The epic story of a farming family driven off their land by the banks and forced to migrate is as poignant and relevant today as it was when written in the 1930’s. Looking for work, trying to survive, experiencing human cruelty and compassion, the Jode family’s struggle is universal.  They travel Route 66 from Oklahoma to California, in a beat-up truck, looking for the Promised Land, fiercely holding the family together. They seek justice in a decent wage for an honest days work. This adaptation uses music from the 30’s and imaginative settings to create the atmosphere of the “dust bowl” and the “great depression” and the people who lived and died under its cloud.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
