New Works/New Communities Multimedia


In December, actors from Cal Shakes and Word for Word gathered in our West Berkeley rehearsal hall to mount four of the stories Octavio Solis is adapting from John Steinbeck's The Pastures of Heaven, developed under the auspices of our New Works/New Communities program, and currently slated to premiere during our 2010 Main Stage season.

Watch a video about our March 2007 trip to Salinas to research The Pastures of Heaven.
