From the author of The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men marks another National Players classic tale. In this tragic and endearing story, we follow the mismatched friendship of George Milton and Lennie Small, two displaced migrant ranch workers in Depression-Era California. Small George has big dreams and tiny frame, while the large but simple Lennie seeks the comfort of everyday little pleasures. Just as George's dreams seem within reach, his compassion is tested through Lennie's mistakes. What makes true men and what makes true friends?
