Of Mice And Men

Selladoor Worldwide and Matthew Townshend Productions with The Marlowe Theatre Canterbury
in association with Stephen McGill Productions and Big Dreamer Productions
present Of Mice And Men

Written by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck and based on his own experiences in the 1920s, Of Mice and Men tells the story of George and Lennie, two migrant farm 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 be ‘somebody'; have independence and be his own boss. Gentle giant Lennie desires 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 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.

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 Selladoor Productions (Avenue Q, The Crucible, American Idiot) and Matthew Townshend Productions (Salad Days, The Rake’s Return, Noel & Gertie) comes this American classic for all time.
