WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This tale is an examination of friendship and survival based on John Steinbeck's 1937 classic of two travelling companions. George and Lennie, wander the country during the Depression, dreaming of a better life for themselves. Then, just as heaven is within their grasp, it is inevitably yanked away. The play explores questions of strength, weakness, usefulness, reality and utopia, bringing California vividly to life.
