John Steinbeck’s classic tale features two migrant workers, drifter George and his mentally challenged friend Lennie, arriving at a ranch to work for enough money to pursue their dream of owning their own farm. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It’s Lennie’s obsession with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. But when the unexpected happens, their dreams take a drastic and tragic turn. In an effort to stay true to the time period and John Steinbeck’s work, Footlighters’ production of OF MICE AND MEN will be performed unedited. This production contains language and themes prevalent to the time period and may be offensive to some audience members.
