Spark

The Steinbeck Project

In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.

In this segment, Spark takes a journey with San Francisco playwright Octavio Solis to the heart of Steinbeck Country in Monterey County, as he seeks inspiration for an adaptation of John Steinbeck's The Pastures of Heaven. Solis is adapting the tales of farmers and ranchers looking for the California dream into a play for California Shakespeare Theater in Orinda.

This Week Produced by Spark for This Week in Northern California.

[Original air date: Fri, May 28, 2010]
