John Steinbeck’s heartbreaking 1937 American classic comes to life in his own stage adaptation. The play, which predates the Tony Awards and the Drama Desk Awards, earned the 1938 New York Drama Critics’ Circle for Best Play. The 1937 production opened while the novel was still on best seller lists. It tells the story of Lennie and George—farm workers in Depression-era California who are trying to scrape together enough money to buy a house of their own. But when Lennie stirs up trouble on the job, George must choose between protecting his friend or staying the course towards his version of the American dream.
ACT’s production of Of Mice and Men is directed by ACT veteran, Traci McKenzie, in her directorial debut. McKenzie recently starred in 2016’s Oklahoma!, Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, and Win/Lose/Draw. The show stars Jason Carusillo as George and Jonathan Berry as Lennie.
