Adapted from John Steinbeck’s famous novel, Of Mice and Men follows the lives of George and Lennie, two drifters that dream of owning their own land. When their journey brings them to a ranch where they hope to earn enough money to finally buy their own property, trouble stirs and their plans must change. In this moment, George is forced to make a decision that challenges the core of human nature and morality. In this critically acclaimed drama, Steinbeck brings the trials of the Great Depression to the forefront, while providing an honest and heart wrenching depiction of these tragic characters. As a unique opportunity to see this iconic tale onstage, educational programs are encouraged to attend.

"Timely and devastatingly effective." - The New York Times

"Even if you already know how Of Mice and Men ends, you may be surprised
how much more powerful it is onstage.” - Colorado Springs Independent
