It is not surprising, given the current economic situation, that West Yorkshire Playhouse put on a production of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath this autumn. As Lower Sixth History students study the Great Depression as part of their course Ms Bloom organised a trip for 34 students to see the play. It was an excellent production with a talented cast including Christopher Timothy and Oliver Cotton. The set was particularly impressive. And though the play was about the fictional Joad family and their tribulations it will give the students a deeper understanding of the social consequences of the Great Depression when they study it in class.
