Audition Description

Steinbach's own stage version of his classic novel tells the story of George and Lenny, the fast talking farm hand and the simple giant who accompanies him on a life of casual labour in the California Agricultural belt in the 1930s. They share a dream of a little place of their own, where Lenny can tend the rabbits and they can "live off the fat of the land". But when Lenny unwittingly kills the young wife of a farm owner's son, George must shatter their dreams to keep Lenny from falling into the hands of the law and the vigilante farm hands bent on revenge.
