Iconic 'Grapes of Wrath' comes to Bainbridge
Mar 16 2010, 1:23 PM
Ma Joad, her hair bound in one long, single braid, kneels quietly at the edge of her father-in-law's grave. She places a small marker on the mound, and the crease in her brow deepens. Nearby sits a truck, a tired machine where a handful of people hang from its every surface; the rungs of its wooden bed rails, the rusted canopy above the cab.
It is a quiet moment during "The Grapes of Wrath," and out of it comes a striking resilience. The Joad family, driven from their Oklahoma home by drought and a dry economy, must continue their journey toward California, a promised land where they hope to restart their lives. The story, which plays out on the Bainbridge Performing Arts stage this month, is hauntingly relevant to today's mounting job losses and hard financial suffering. But it isn't a story of defeat.
"I can't think of a more iconic American story," said director Kate Carruthers. "It's not a depressing story. It's a story of hope and inspiration and love."

Lately I have been mentioning the group Slow Food to various people and have been surprised to find out many folks don’t know about it. Slow Food International’s roots are in 1986, when a concerned group resisted the opening of a McDonald’s near the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy. Slow Food describes themselves as a “nonprofit, eco-gastronomic, member-supported organization that was founded ... to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. To do that, Slow Food brings together pleasure and responsibility, and makes them inseparable.” Slow Food even opened the University of Gastronomic Science (aka Slow Food University) in Italy, with the main objective of bridging the gap between agricultural science and gastronomy. My husband and I are lucky enough to get to visit it next October when we take a small group on our food and wine tour in Italy.
