GREENE – Closing the season, from Oct. 1-24, Chenango River Theatre will mount the classic beauty from the heart of American literature, “Of Mice and Men.” Co-produced by IBM and Naima & Ara Kradjian and written by John Steinbeck, one of America’s most celebrated authors, the play won the 1938 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Until you’ve seen it on stage, you haven’t really experienced it.
It’s the American dream - owning some land, some place to call your own, to be your own boss. Steinbeck tells a powerful story set during the Great Depression that explores the ultimate bond of friendship. It’s a tale of two drifters - men whose dreams are always just beyond the horizon - a story that talks about the real hopes and dreams of working class America, then and now.
