A dramatization of Steinbeck's masterpiece-"Here are solid characters, a taut and emotional story, a beginning, a middle and a wrenching end."-Washington Post

The Story:
Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, have just arrived at a ranch towork for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child--"with the strength of a gorilla and the mind of an untutored child"--a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsession with things oft and cuddly that have made George cautious about whom the gently giant, with his brute strength, associates with. But when a ranch boss' promiscuous wife if found dead in the barn with a broken neck, its obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.
