Of Mice and Men: The Play by John SteinbeckI havent read the original book since high school, but the play is set to open this coming weekend* and I swear to God its incredible. Much like my reaction to Grapes of Wrath, I prefer the staged version to the written one. Not sure if its because the play script divests of the excessive description or what exactly, but I love this. OMAM is certainly a timeless story, but Im glad its available in multiple mediums. I remember not being a fan of the film when we watched it in school either, but I think if I rewatched it or reread the novel now Id have a greater appreciation for all of it.
*That is, the community production Im ASMing on the fly. Hoo boy.

In community theater, directors often lack the luxury of being able to cast ideal physical types in key roles. His verbal hesitations and stammers add to the portrait of someone frustrated by his inability to make himself understood. So why does George stick with Lenny? Lennie also gives George the opportunity to articulate his dreams for a better life. Ultimately, the deepest tragedy of the play belongs to George. Having killed Lennie, even though out of kindness, George has also knowingly killed his only dream.
