John Steinbeck’s classic "Of Mice and Men" comes to life on the stage this Friday.
"Of Mice and Men" is a story of friendship and dreams. Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," Lennie, a man-child, obsesses over things soft and cuddly. George takes care of Lennie and his brute strength as the two journey through life.
“Steinbeck draws the stories out of his characters and just pulls the audience in,” said the show’s director, Joanie McEloy. “He finds that common piece of humanity that we can all relate to - in this case a need for companionship. It’s such a compelling story.“
The show runs, Sept. 14-30 with Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday’s show at 2 p.m. and is for adult audiences only. Admission is
$15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. Group rate is $10. Complimentary dessert is served at intermission. Reservations are highly recommended. Log on to www.lionhearttheatre.org or call 678-938-8518.
