Run of Show

A genuine classic of the American stage, Of Mice and Men is the moving character study of two Depression-era drifters whose hardscrabble lives are buoyed by dreams of buying a ranch together. Simple-minded Lennie is a powerfully-built “gentle giant” and George is his steadfast protector. Steinbeck’s tragic and timeless masterpiece is a potent affirmation of human love and loyalty.
