When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18 2017
John Steinbeck's characters George and Lennie have worked their way into the American consciousness. The two migrant farm workers have dreams of getting their own spread and living happily after, as pure a definition of the American dream as you're going to find. But Lennie is too strong for his own good, and unable to control himself because of his mental disability. George watches out for him, because Lennie is a magnet for trouble — and trouble is relentless when you're a migrant worker, then and now. SATE closes its "season of adaptation" with Steinbeck's own stage adaptation of Of Mice and Men. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (November 8 to 18) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
