King’s Town Players to Present ‘Of Mice and Men’

in Entertainment by

Queen's University Theological Hall

King’s Town Players will be staging John Steinbeck’s classic “Of Mice and Men” at Theological Hall on Queen’s University main campus this coming May.

The play is directed by Chris McKinnon with performances at 7:30 pm on May 3rd to 6th, and May 10th to the 13th.

Set in America during the Great Depression, this classic play tells the story of George and Lennie, two migrant farm workers, who go in search of new beginnings, in the hope of attaining their shared dream: of putting together enough money to buy a small piece of land and building a home.

After a long and exhausting journey, the pair arrive at a farm in California where they seek work. But they are no strangers to trouble and soon find themselves reeling from the fall out of an innocent misunderstanding which spirals out of control and leaves the two men, bound together by friendship, facing an earth-shattering climax.

Tickets are $25 for adults – $22 for students, seniors, and the military – and can be purchased online at kingstonboxoffice.com.
