Madison Lyric Stage presents the Connecticut premier of the American musical drama Of Mice and Men, May 31 – June 9 at the historic Deacon John Grave House and Farm in Madison, CT. This will be an immersive production for a maximum of 40 audience members per performance.
Based on the classic John Steinbeck novella, Of Mice and Men is a chamber opera, in English, composed in 1970 by Carlisle Floyd. It tells the story of two migrant field workers – George, intelligent but uneducated, and Lennie, a bulky, strong man who is mentally challenged – who arrive in California during the Great Depression to work on a small ranch.
Of Mice and Men will be performed at the over 300-year-old Deacon John Grave House and former farm. Audience members will begin their journey outside the House as they meet George and Lennie for the first time. They will then move into one room in the House for Act I and into a second room for Act II.
