This Steinbeck masterpiece tells the enduring story of the friendship between George and Lennie, two itinerant workers in California during the Great Depression. Their struggles, joys and ultimate downfall are captured in Steinbeck's inimitable style. George looks after the childlike giant Lennie as they begin work on a local ranch and dream about the future. Audiences will laugh and cry as the story is captured on a grand set, with full costumes and lighting, on a beautiful outdoor stage. Faux Renwah featuring Cactus Bob and the Prairie Flower will play live music.
