About this show

Set in California during the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men is the tragic story of two displaced ranch workers traveling from place to place and job to job as a result of the economic recession. The unlikely friends are united by their dream of someday settling down on their own piece of land and finding a better life. We watch as George and Lennie flee the scene of a terrible misunderstanding and move on to face a world marked by loneliness, misunderstanding, and callousness. Though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: it is friendship and a shared dream that make life meaningful.
