 “I got you, and we got each other”

George and Lennie are migrants with a dream; a dream of a better life, a place where they can belong, where Lennie feels safe and George can be somebody. But this is the Great Depression, not many dreams come true in a time where a few have plenty but most have nothing. When the friends take a job on Curly’s farm, tragedy unfolds leading to a heart-breaking decision.

John Steinbeck’s classic novel is more than 80 years old, but with themes of economic migration, racism, prejudice and exclusion it remains a parable for our times.

A story of enduring friendship, this new production from Rep Associate Director and Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony Director, Iqbal Khan, puts a 2023 lens on Steinbeck’s affecting tale of the crumbling American dream.  His recent Rep productions include East is East and Tartuffe.
