Steinbeck received the 1938 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Of Mice and Men and, in 1962, the Nobel Prize for Literature.

In Depression-era California, unable to maintain stable work because of Lennie’s low mental capacity, George and Lennie find work on a ranch, dreaming of one day owning a ranch of their own. Their hopes, like "the best laid schemes o' mice an' men," begin to go awry.  Soon after settling in and making friends, their world is ripped apart by tragedy.  John Steinbeck's classic tale of two friends explores the underside of the American Dream.

Glen Coffman directs Of Mice and Men. Stephen Elton is featured in the role of Lennie and Terry Erbe in the role of George. Additional members of the cast include David Alexander Johnston, Amy Erbe, Greg Sweet, Tim McKiernan, Brian Wees, Jonathan Hicks, Nate Weisband and Darwin.
