The compelling story of two outsiders striving
to find their place in an unforgiving world.
Drifters in search of work, George and his
simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in
the world except each other and a dream –
a dream that one day they will have some
land of their own. Eventually they find
work on a ranch in California’s Salinas
Valley, but their hopes are doomed as
Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty,
misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy,
becomes a victim of his own strength.
Tackling universal themes and giving voice
to America’s lonely and dispossessed,
Of Mice and Men has proved one of
Steinbeck’s most popular works, achieving
success as a novel, a Broadway play and
three acclaimed films.
