Based on the novella and play by John Steinbeck, Carlisle Floyd's Of Mice and Men stays faithful to the story of two depression era workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, struggling to achieve their American dream of owning their own farm.  However, when fate forces them down a different path, they must say goodbye to their dreams of a bright future. 

Premiered in 1970, Floyd's Of Mice and Men has become an essential piece of the American repertoire and is performed all over the world.
