Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winner John Steinbeck's tale of two drifters is one of the most widely read stories in America.
Originally written as both a novella and a script for a play, Of Mice and Men tells the tragic story of two California
migrant ranch workers during the Great Depression. Perhaps in no other time since has this play deserved a restaging and is
able to connect deeply with such a wide audience. This wrenching tale of struggle is as poignant as when it first appeared,
and for those who haven't considered the story since high school, it's even better with age. Purchase Of Mice and Men tickets at StubHub today!
George and Lennie have dreams of making enough money to buy their own place. Lennie needs extra attention; he's is a little
boy in the body of a big man. George is ever cautious of his gentle giant friend, dangerously powerful yet in need of constant
reassurance. Of Mice and Men emphasizes the importance of dreams, but tragically, the characters are often powerless, due
to intellectual, economic and social realities that thwart those dreams. Compelling, rich and sadly still very modern, Of
Mice and Men remains a hallmark of American drama. Get your Of Mice and Men play

This latest production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men recreates the gritty reality of the 1930s working man. Like
many struggling Americans today, George and Lennie have dreams of forging their own path to success and prosperity, but the
harsh realities of a broken system lead to feelings of despair and tragedy. Although some elements have changed with time,
the values and aspirations of the play remain the same. This struggle for independence and identity is at the core of the
play, themes all audiences can relate to. Of Mice and Men continues to fascinate audiences and artists as it speaks to our
shared human condition.
Undeserved fate, perhaps cruel, is the tragedy in Of Mice and Men. George and Lennie, like so many people today, did nothing
more than dare to dream of success, but unfortunately for the tragic heroes, fate had other plans. This latest production
of Steinbeck's classic play looks, sounds and smells like the worker of 1930s, yet this play could be set yesterday, today
or tomorrow. Dirt, leaves and straw will always blanket the earth, mice will always gnaw for a scrap and people will always
sleep under a bowl of stars, dreaming of their success. Purchase Cal
