contribute's picture

Eighty years. That's how long ago Of Mice And Men was written. And it's still wildly popular, as both a book and a play.

But maybe you missed reading it in high school. Or maybe you forgot to go when it came out as a movie in 1939. And again in 1968. And once more in 1992 (gee, you're busy).

Well, lucky for you, it's here in Hopkinton this month for five moving performances.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kyler Taustin

Free Outdoor Shakespeare returns with Brown Box’s most ambitious production yet.
