Intense and powerful “Of Mice and Men” now playing at the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

Sometimes you just don’t know your own strength

As the play begins, we are introduced to quick witted George Milton (Gili Getz) and simple minded Lennie Small (Kevin Hauver) , two friends, migrant ranch workers who are making their way through the depression era country side as they head to a new ranch where they are hoping to get work.

Stopping for the night before arriving at the ranch we learn that Lennie doesn’t realize his own strength, and that he has an attraction for tactile sensation. He likes soft things, this is something that has caused problems for him in the past. We also learn that George and Lennie share a dream of owning a ranch of their own.

Dreams are a theme that echos throughout the Steinbeck’s book and the Roxy’s adaption of this play.
