Set against the harsh backdrop of the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men
is the story of George and Lennie, two friends with a simple dream: to own a farm and live off the fat of the land. There are times, though, when sharpwitted George feels the burden of looking after Lennie, while gentle giant Lennie doesn't realise his own strength... As they drift from job to job, trouble's never far away, and before long it's time to move on again. When the pair get work in Soledad, California, however, the dream looks set to become a reality. But a tragic turn of events threatens to destroy George and Lennie's friendship and leaves George faced with an impossible choice...Performers Jeff Alexander (Crooks), Tom Berish (Curley), David Ganly (Lennie), Nicholas Hart (Whit), Siobhan O'Kelly (Curley's Wife), Thomas Padden (George), Carl Patrick (The Boss/Carlson), Ian Porter (Slim), Johnson Willis (Candy).
