Press notes describe the production as such: "George dreams of owning land and being his own boss. His mentally challenged partner, Lennie, simply dreams of playing with rabbits. Having encountered problems at their last job, George and Lennie are forced to flee to a new farm for work, until Lennie's simple-minded strength gets them into trouble." Helmed by Mark Lamos (Cymbeline, Seascape, The Rivals), the company includes Brian Hutchison (George), Mark Mineart (Lennie), Mateo Gomez (Boss), Kene Holliday (Crooks), Matthew Montelongo (Slim), Betsy Morgan (Curly's Wife), Tommy Nohilly (Carlson), Sean Patrick Reilly (Whit), Rafael Sardina (Curly) and Edward Seamon (Candy).
