The UNLV Performing Arts Center welcomes The Acting Company in a very special performance of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men at 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 21 in Artemus Ham Concert Hall.

Founded by the legendary John Houseman and current producing artistic director Margot Harley, the Acting Company has won Obie, L.A. Drama Critics Circle Awards and a Tony.

George and Lennie are drifters with dreams of living off the “fat of the land.”

They arrive at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own farm. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man.

It is Lennie’s obsession with things soft and cuddly that make George cautious about who Lennie befriends.

George often promises to allow Lennie to “tend to the rabbits” as a means of keeping him calm amidst distractions.

When the ranch boss’ wife is found dead in the barn, George is faced with a moral question:

How to deal with Lennie and the situation before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.

Steinbeck’s stories about common people surviving uncommon tragedy and fate have captivated generations of readers around the world. George and Lennie will be etched in your memory forever.
