by John Steinbeck / Winner of the 1938 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award
In Steinbeck’s classic American tragedy, two drifting dreamers, George and his friend Lennie, land at a ranch to work and save for their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man, and George is his sole protector. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as he needs constant reassurance. One reckless moment alters their fate, though, and George is faced with a disturbing moral question that will change their partnership forever.
