Of Mice & Men

Charleston professional theatre company Threshold Rep brings the heart-wrenching classic “Of Mice and Men” to the stage January 14-February 13, directed by Chris Weatherhead, a veteran of theater, film and TV for over thirty years in New York, Hollywood and regionally. Based on the award-winning novel by John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men tells the story of two friends searching for work in California during the Great Depression. George and his simple minded friend Lennie dream of owning their own farm yet Lennie’s excessive strength and mental handicaps derail their dream as they flee from one job to the next. Despite George’s irritation with Lennie’s antics he steps in to protect Lennie as his episodes continue to get out of hand. Performances are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm.
