Of Mice & Men - September 30 - October 3, 2015
Set in the 1930s, Of Mice and Men tells the story of George Milton and Lennie Small, two migrant workers with dreams of living off "the fat of the land". George is intelligent, but uneducated. Lennie is a child in the body of a dangerously powerful man. Together they find work on a ranch where trouble is waiting to be stirred up.
This classic, tragic story looks at what draw us together as people and the things that tear us apart. It deals with hope, loneliness and the American Dream.
Step out of rural Manitoba and into the Californian dust bowl.
Experience Steinbeck's classic story like never before as you walk among the scenes set in the outdoor Mennonite Heritage Village.
Journey with George and Lennie as they discover the dangers that await them at the innocent seeming ranch.
Smell the musty hay in the barn where Lennie takes refuge with his pup, and where he is eventually found by Curley's Wife.
Walk with the ranch hands and learn more about them as they follow with the story to its inevitable conclusion.
All performances will take place in the natural environment of the outdoor museum, rain or shine. Appropriate clothing and footware are recommended.
