    Octavio Solis’ visionary play, inspired by John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, picks up 90 years after Steinbeck’s masterpiece. This timely sequel takes us on a journey of highway and heart that could easily begin right here in the Santa Maria Valley. Hard-worn and ailing, William Joad (last remaining cousin to Tom Joad of Steinbeck’s story), seeks and finds young Mexican-American migrant farmworker, Martín Jodes. They are bound together by a surprising and serendipitous blood knot that holds the keys to their fates, and brands them travel partners in an epic journey down the Mother Road – the literal Route 66 and the figurative root of their shared legacy – as they both find a way home.
