Frostburg State University’s University Theatre Main Stage season will end for 2006-2007 with an African American production of John Steinbeck’s classic, “Of Mice and Men.” Theatergoers will have six chances to catch the show, which will be performed on April 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee on April 14 at 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre.
“Of Mice and Men” is the moving story of George and his simple-minded friend Lennie, two lonely and alienated Depression-era drifters who dream of buying a ranch together. Shortly after they begin to work on a Salinas Valley ranch, their hopes—like “the best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men” — take a turn for the worse. The two friends discover the harsh flip-side of the American Dream, and their friendship is tragically tested beyond normal limits. Based on the famous novella by John Steinbeck, “Of Mice and Men” is an evocative, beautifully rendered portrait of "outsiders" who struggle to survive in an unforgiving world.
