ABOUT THE PLAY
Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the fat of the land, have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. Its Lennies obsessions with things soft and cuddly, that have made George cautious about who associates with the gentle giant. His promise to allow Lennie to tend to the rabbits on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, its obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they cant 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.

Landed a $1,600 gig on my 2nd day of signing up! I signed up on a Wednesday and was hired for a gig Thursday! It is a "Live Event" - Gameshow Host for the Independent Film Channel. The opportunity was placed on my calendar, I sent my info to the contact person and two phone calls later I was hired. I was flown to NYC, put up in a hotel for a night and spent a day in training. Upon completion (12 days total,3-4 hours a day) I will have earned $1,600! Just wanted to say THANK YOU! Jacqueline Rich
