The Acting Company: Of Mice and Men
- April 28, 2013 at 4:00 pm
This leading American touring company brings the literary masterpiece Of Mice and Men to the stage for a memorable theatrical experience. Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winner John Steinbeck’s tragic tale tells of two drifting migrant workers in California during the Great Depression: George, a smart yet cynical man, and Lennie, a gentle giant with the mind of a child. Lifelong friends who are devoted to each other, they nurture a hopeless dream of someday saving enough money to buy a farm. This deeply moving work explores themes of loneliness and companionship, the imbalance of power and victimization, and most of all, the impossibility of the American dream. Hailed as “the major touring classical theater company in the United States,” by The New York Times, this legendary ensemble was founded by John Houseman and Margot Harley in 1972 and has helped launch the careers of many well-known actors.
