The Quay Theatre Film Special "The Bikes of Wrath "

f you are interested in cycling / America / John Steinbeck / Adventure / Unique characters / Wide landscapes or all of the aforementioned then this is the independent film for you!
(We are hoping to have at least one of the Australian team from the film at the screening for a meet and greet / Q&A).

Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the westward migration undertaken by 'The Grapes of Wrath's' Joad family.

Oklahoma to California: 2600 kms, 420 dollars, 30 days, 5 bikes, 3 cameras, 2 guitars and one of the most influential novels of the 20th century.

Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck’s seminal novel.

Unique, funny, inspiring and insightful documentary filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

Come out to the theatre on March 26th starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets start at £7 and you can book here.
