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



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.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
