Steinback’s own stage version of his classic novel tells the story of George and Lenny, the fast-talking farm hand and the simple giant who accompanies him on a life of casual labour in the California Agricultural Belt of the 1930’s. They share a dream of a little place of their own, where Lenny can tend the rabbits and they can ‘live off the fat of the land’. Set in the trying times of the Great Depression, Of Mice and 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.
Still relevant to modern times, this is a moving story about trying to hold on to your dreams and friendships during difficult times.
The play is presented by special permission of Josef Weinberger Limited.
Taking place at Pendleton Sixth Form College’s Ben Kingsley Theatre, the production will run between Tuesday 25th February and Friday 28th February. Click here for tickets.
