In the play, Migrant workers George and Lennie dream of owning their own ranch someday, a story that gives them hope as they travel from place to place. When the impossibility of that dream meets harsh reality, it brings George to the brink of an unimaginably difficult choice.
Beloved by generations of readers and brought vividly to life onstage, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s classic Of Mice and Men is a heartbreaking and powerful portrait of the human spirit.
Of Mice and Men is directed by Christopher Rose and stars Upstate stage veterans Brock Koonce as Lennie and Matthew Merritt as George.
The prodution will run October 28 – November 6. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased at www.milltownplayers.org or call (864)947-8000
