MANSFIELD — The Mass Music & Arts Society is currently staging the classic “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck with some highly charged dramatic performances in its Black Box Theatre. But be forewarned: This is not a play for the faint-hearted.

The Steinbeck work draws its title from the Robert Burns poem “To A Mouse,” and specifically the line, “The best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry.”

“Of Mice and Men” continues though Sunday, Feb. 4, at The Black Box, 377 North Main St., Mansfield. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. For tickets and more information, call 508-339-2822 or visit www.mmas.com.
