Inspired by John Steinbeck's crusading and emotionally powerful The Grapes of Wrath, playwright Gabriel Rivas Gomez has written a gripping new drama for the stage, Swarm Cell. It's 25 years in the future and a pair of homeless women forge an unlikely alliance. In an economy turned on its head, the duo -- one deaf, the other pregnant and undocumented -- find work in a mysterious warehouse. Conditioned to believe the commodities they package hold more value than their own lives, the workers begin to realize that devising a "hive" might be their only hope for survival. Robert Castro directs this journey into a "brave new world of womanhood and identity" at Greenway Court Theatre.
