Of Mice and Mink By Ryan Landry is freely adapted from the classic novella by John Steinbeck Directed by James P. Byrne. Of Mice and Mink tells the tragi-comic story of Georgie (Larry Coen) and Linda (Rick Park), two “not so pretty” hookers living through the current “not so great” depression without a friend to lean on or a pot piss in. Entertaining delusions of one day “getting out” our heroines soon arrive at “Lula Mae’s Cat Ranch,” a bottom of the barrel brothel on “the wrongest” side of town. The situations and characters they find there prove less than desirable and while Georgie tries her best to keep their “thin web of dreams” from breaking. Linda, on the other hand, (a woman-child in the body of a dangerously powerful “She Hulk”) is no help at all. Naturally, when tragedy strikes, it seems obvious that the mentally challenged Linda is responsible. … Or is she? The answer to that question and others are the surprises that await you in Of Mice and Mink.
