"They searched for promised joy..." From Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck comes this brutal yet tender stage masterpiece.
Lennie and George are two drifting farm workers who find friendship, humor, hope and tragedy while scratching out a living on a California ranch during the Great Depression. They dream of saving enough money to buy their own piece of land one day, but others on the ranch have their own secret longings and desires - some of which collide explosively.
This heartwarming and gripping tale of love, longing, and sacrifice is as powerful and relevant today as when it was first staged 80 years ago. Presented with the simplicity and power of Steinbeck’s own prose, this unique event is not to be missed.
