Of Mice and Men
by John Steinbeck
One of John Steinbeck's stories set in the Great Depression.
George and his friend Lennie are migratory workers during the time right after the Dust Bowl, which displaced many from their homes
and forced them to look elsewhere for jobs.
These two men travel together, often leaving jobs due to Lennie’s obsessions and people misunderstanding him.
George is cautious about who Lennie associates with and is protective. His promise to allow Lennie to “tend to the rabbits” on their future land helps distract as Lennie needs constant reassurance.
Four of the men working on the ranch end up finding they all have the same dream, to own and tend to their own land.
They agree to a future together.
Is their dream a reality for them,
or is it doomed from happening?
Every role in this play is vital to interpreting the way of life for migratory workers and isolation during the Great Depression.
They address the social issues of the time.
This presentation will be presented in the original words
and events of the play and time period and
may be disturbing to some audience members.
Viewer discretion advised.
We will not progress into a brighter future
if we choose to ignore where we have been.
