About the show

The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company presents John Steinbeck's classic drama set in California during the Great Depression with migrant workers wandering the fertile valley in search of work. More…

The workers are homeless, dispossessed, discriminated against, and desperate to survive. Among these throngs of men we meet George Milton and Lennie Small, an unlikely pair with a dream of a better life. George is a guardian and big brother to Lennie, and Lennie is a constant and loyal companion to George. They arrive a few miles south of Soledad where they find work and, for the first time, a real chance at a decent future.
