About mice and people
The performance about mice and people is a touching and spectacular theatrical performance that will not leave anyone indifferent. This is an unusual story about the lives of two friends who travel around the Wild West in search of refuge. To survive, Lenny and George are interrupted by temporary earnings on farms. Despite all the difficulties, they continue to cherish their dream of creating their own economy and a prosperous future. This is one of the most ambitious theatrical events, so you should hurry.
A unique theatrical performance was created on the basis of the eponymous novel by the famous American writer John Steinbeck. The literary work of the Nobel laureate raises important socio-economic problems that are relevant today. It is worth noting that for fifteen years the story has been a bestseller in the United States. In real life, anyone can meet the same incorrigible romantics, like George, or trustful and naive people, like Lenny. However, both in the plot of the story and in reality, such people will have to face unforgiving realities.
George is distinguished by intelligence and ingenuity, having the ability to find a way out of the most difficult troubles. Lenny is a real hero with great power, but due to the fact that he is mentally retarded, the hero constantly finds himself in problematic and sometimes very tragic situations, since he cannot control his strength and feelings. The literary work is filled with humanity, simplicity and depth, as well as incredible clarity, in which lies its greatness. The finale of the story shows that in the cruel world there is no longer a place for the main characters. The star cast perfectly conveys all the shades and colors of the legendary work. Bogdan Benyuk, Anatoly Khostikoev and Natalia Sumskaya are the leading actors.
The performance about mice and people in Kiev received a lot of awards and was highly appreciated by theater critics. In 2005, he received the Kiev Pectoral, and in 2008 he won the National Prize. T. Shevchenko.
