THE GRAPES OF WRATH
****
This is an original, unusual and ambitious production.
The original Steinbeck story of a poor farming family leaving
the grim reality of the man-made mid-western Dust Bowl
in the Great Depression in search of mythical salvation in
California has been a world-wide best-seller. The Nottingham
Playhouse production follows it faithfully but adds a new
dimension original music and lyrics. This does not make it
a Musical, it makes
it a classic story
with added music
written specially
for it. The cast
of 16 professionals are supported by teams of
enthusiastic amateurs from the local community.
The result is terrific theatre, with a final scene as
quietly dramatic as any I have ever seen, anywhere.
