Steinbeck’s classic, The Grapes of Wrath brought to life at the Hall for Cornwall

Tickets just £9.39 plus a 90p Theatre Fund payment Drama fans are in for a treat this November when Steinbeck’s classic, The Grapes of Wrath is brought to life on the Hall for Cornwall stage. Presented by English Touring Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre, both known as powerhouses for great work, this high-quality production has a stellar cast of 20 led by favourites Christopher Timothy, Sorcha Cusack and Oliver Cotton. The play tells the moving story of the Joad family as they leave their farm in Oklahoma after it is repossessed during the Great Depression and embark on a journey to the promised land, California! At the time of publication in 1939, Steinbeck’s novel was a phenomenon on the scale of a national event. It was publicly banned and burned by citizens, it was debated on national radio but, above all, it was read. Join the Joads as they experience great loss and sadness, yet show humour and above all human compassion in the face of adversity as they chase the impossible dream. Evening performances begin at 7.30pm, with matinees on Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets are from £10.50 to £19, with concessions and a 90p Theatre Fund payment added to each ticket sold.
