This production of John Steinbeckâ€™s Of Mice and Men recreates the gritty reality of the 1930s working man. Even though the context of our world has changed, our community values remain the same. This truth is at the core of the play. Of Mice and Men continues to fascinate audiences and artists as it speaks to our shared human condition.
To our audience: This production of Of Mice and Men adheres to the format of the original script and includes language that some may find objectionable.
