Rogue: Free Open Talk

Saturday, January 6, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm MST

A Free Open Talk Brandished, Banned, Burned: John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath This Saturday, January 6, 2:00-3:00 p.m. Free, no reservation required.

Steinbeck wrote The Grapes of Wrath over the course of 100 days in 1938. He was writing about a specific group of people during a specific time in American history: the thousands of share-croppers turned out of their Midwestern homes during the great Dust Bowl.

But Steinbeck touched something more universal with this epic novel. He wrote about the human need for connection, about the nature of home and family, about kindness and despair and love and justice. Working on The Grapes of Wrath at The Rogue has been an extraordinary experience–living with these iconic characters, living with these big ideas. We can’t wait to share this unforgettable story with you, dear friends. And please be sure to get your tickets soon – two of the matinee performances are already sold out.

Patrick Baliani, UA Honors College Interdisciplinary Faculty Member, will discuss the controversial nature of the work, and what continues to make it relevant even today. Professor Baliani’s presentation will be followed by a sneak preview of the play.

The open talk is supported in part by a generous gift from
Paul Winick & Ronda Lustman

January 11 – 28, 2018
