By: John Steinbeck

Show Description:

Hope slams headlong into a wall of tragic bad luck in this tale of migrant workers in Depression-era California. A seemingly impossible American Dream fuels sadness, yet the depth of tragedy is balanced by joy and friendship, hope and aspiration. In George and Lenny, we have one of literature’s most memorable friendships. As relevant now as it ever was, Steinbeck’s play follows his novel closely. An intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness, Of Mice and Men explores questions of strength, weakness, usefulness, reality and utopia in Depression-Era California.
