Wednesday 13th April, 2016 - 20:00€16 – €18
Of Mice and Men is a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.
Set in California during the Great Depression, it follows two migrant workers George, a sharp but uneducated, short-tempered man, and Lennie, a large but simple-minded man. Together they hope to one day acquire their own piece of land. But when Lennie stirs up trouble on the job, George must choose between protecting his friend or staying the course towards his version of the American dream.
Adapted by John Steinbeck from his novel of the same name, the play was first produced in 1937, and was chosen as Best Play in 1938 by the New York Drama Critics’ Circle.
“…Steinbeck has caught on paper two odd and lovable farm vagrants whose fate is implicit in their characters.” New York Times
