Of Mice & Men

 

A thrilling new production of the most iconic and powerful story in American literature

Written by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck and based on his own experiences in the twenties, Of Mice & Men tells the story of George and Lennie, two migrant ranch workers who dream of owning their own ranch. With nothing but the clothes on their back and a dream, the wily and bright George aspires to independence, to be his own boss and most importantly to be ‘somebody’. Gentle Giant Lennie aspires to be with George and join him in his Eden, but as the saying goes - the best laid schemes of mice and men, often go awry.

Set in the trying times of the Great Depression, when millions were forced to travel in search of a job and their dreams, Of Mice & Men is a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heart-breaking testament to the bonds of friendship and what it means to be human.

Considered a challenging and controversial play this brand-new production promises to bring to the stage a magical and imaginative story about trying to hold on to your dreams and friendships during fiercely tough times and a faceless destiny. A tale still relevant to modern times.

From the producers of Avenue Q, The Crucible, American Idiot and Flashdance comes this American classic for all time.

 

Running Time: 2 hours 30 mins approx. (inc. interval)
