CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'.

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 Joe McGann (Lennie), Andrew Schofield (George), Stephen Casey (Curley), Sandra Reinton (Curley's wife), Oscar James (Crooks), Sean Baker (Candy), Julian Protheroe (Slim), Ed Bishop (Boss), Neil Philips (Carlson), Nick Stringer.
