'Of Mice And Men' Opens At Carbondale's Thunder River Theatre Company

Thunder River Theater Company’s “Of Mice and Men” begins its run Friday evening. The production re-imagines the classic John Steinbeck tale for modern audiences.



“Of Mice and Men” is the Depression-era story of the friendship between two migrant farm workers. George, played by Thunder River Theatre Company’s artistic director Corey Simpson, is the caretaker of his mentally disabled companion, Lennie, played by Owen Farrell.  

The production is directed by Lon Winston, who says the retelling is focused on themes that are still relevant today, like end-of-life decisions and whether the American dream is achievable.   

“Of Mice And Men” starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
