Mother Road

Times Vary

As the hardworking and terminally ill William Joad sets out on an epic journey to pass down his family farm, he is humiliated to find that the only surviving descendant of his family is a Mexican-American named Martín Jodes, an ex-migrant worker. Inspired by John Steinbeck’s classic, The Grapes of Wrath, the two men take a ride through the Mother Road, traveling from California back to Oklahoma, all while forging an unlikely bond and coming to terms with their brutal past. This powerful new play, written by playwright Octavio Solis (El Paso Blue, Quixote), examines the crossroads of family, immigration and the American dream.
