Based on the novella, the author John Steinbeck went on to publish Of Mice and Men. It tells us the story of two drifters, George and Lennie, friends who have a shared dream of wanting to run a farm. Here Lennie has dreams of ‘tending to rabbits’, as he loves soft things he can get his hands on. They arrive at a ranch to work in the hopes of raising money for their dream. Lennie has a child-like mind with ox-like strength, this makes George abundantly cautious who Lennie associates with and watches over him. Since the book was published in 1937, the heartbreaking story and characters of Of Mice and Men has captivated audiences and readers of all walks of life.
Lennie: 20-30s year old male. He is large and lumbering who has a child-like mind. He does not understand his own strength, and has a great love for soft things.
George: 20-30s year old male. He is quick-witted and watches over Lennie. He one day hopes to own his own farm.

Curley’s Wife: 20s female. She is a beautiful, young girl whom the men on the farm refer to as a “tramp.”

Synopsis: At a large, tastefully appointed townhouse in Sneden's Landing, New York, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications
mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
Characters: 5m, 5f

causes his temporary deafness.
