Starring James Franco, Chris O'Dowd and Leighton Meester, this new revival of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck's novel follows two migrant workers as they struggle to realize their own version of the American Dream during the Great Depression. Of Mice and Men has been nominated for two Tony Awards for its cast, including Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for Chris O'Dowd.
Franco, O'Dowd and Meester star alongside Jim Parrack and Jim Norton. The production is playing a limited run, and is directed by Tony-winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County).
Emotional and touching in equal measure, Of Mice and Men follows two friends, George (Franco) and Lennie (O'Dowd), as they drift from job to job across the fields and farms of California during the hardship of 1920s America. The unlikely duo make ends meet by taking up work as laborers, dreaming of one day being able to own a piece of land to call their own.
When Lennie - a gentle giant with a simple nature - runs into trouble on one of the farms though, George must choose between standing by his best friend or staying the course to fulfill his own American dream.
Did you know? Of Mice and Men is based upon Steinbeck's own memories of growing up in rural America and his experiences of working on farmlands alongside migrant workers during the summers of his youth.
