A story of timeless endurance and power, Steinbeck's 1937 play will grab you by the heart and never let you go. George and Lennie, an unlikely
duo, are bound together by fragile hope and an illusory dream of a little land to call their own. A riveting tale illuminating the struggles of the haves and have-nots, as they search for freedom, friendship, and the promise of America.
Of Mice and Men is directed by Russ Banham. It features Seattle favorites George Mount and Jim Lapan, as well as Gavin Cummins, Keith Dahlgren, Marcel Davis,Tim Gouran, Brad Harrington. Ben Harris, John Murray, and Hilary Pickles.
