Details

OF MICE AND MEN

John Steinbeck wrote his novella Of Mice and Men in 1937, immediately following it with his stage version, which quickly became a theatre classic. It won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Best Play in 1938, and has been performed continuously since, with the first (of many) film adaptations coming in 1939.

Set firmly in the Great Depression, Steinbeck’s tale of two landless itinerant workers explores the universality of human hopes and dreams. The play’s careful construction is like a Greek tragedy, and the issues it uncompromisingly raises, from economic disenfranchisement to disability to racism and sexism are as relevant today as they were when the play was written. The language and the action, both brutally of their time, can be confronting, but it remains a powerful and moving examination of the human condition not to be missed.

Launceston’s Three River Theatre has assembled a stellar cast to bring the show to life, including Cameron Hindrum, Travis Hennessy, Michael Edgar, Jonathan Pedler, Ryan Politis, Eleanore Knox, Matt Taylor, Leigh Oswin, Freddie Brown and Thanalert Ellen.

Directed by Stan Gottschalk.
