Description
In the words of The Chicago Reader, "The witty script supplies the one thing Steinbeck lacked: a sense of humor!...OF GRAPES AND NUTS dogs its original like a comic bloodhound." Chicago's WBBM Radio said, "I have a feeling that were he alive today, John Steinbeck would be chuckling more than just a little...OF GRAPES AND NUTS scoots along, as Tom Joad might say, like a 12-toed man in a foot race." "'It ain't the heat, it's the humility.' That opening line strangely summarizes the heartbreak of GRAPES OF WRATH and sets the tone for this clever show. Irreverent on its surface, hilariously accurate in its mimicry, OF GRAPES AND NUTS is a tribute par excellence to Steinbeck..." Susan Pellowe, Plays International "The Players have scaled comic heights before. Their GLASS MENDACITY was the most devastating send-up of Tennessee Williams since his last four plays, and ALL MY SPITE reduced Arthur Miller to an hour-long gut buster. But with OF GRAPES AND NUTS, a surefire satire on Steinbeck, they've struck the mother lode of comedy." Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader - from Amzon
