OF MICE AND MEN
TIN SHED THEATRE COMPANY RETURN TO THE THEATRE ON THE STEPS WITH JOHN STEINBECK'S POWERFUL STORY OF MICE AND MEN
Of Mice and Men tells the story of George Milton and Lenny Small, two very different men bound together by providence. Set against the backdrop of the American Great Depression, our hapless protagonists hatch a plan to leave their life of poverty behind and start anew. It seems so simple, and perhaps that’s what is so beautiful about it, but little do they know, fate still has a hand to play.
John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men barely needs an introduction. Since its first début on stage in the November of 1937 it has become staple in British theatre, and although many audiences have seen it before, they simple joy of its writing, through to the build up of its climactic end never fail to entertain and move audiences new and old to the story.
John Steinbeck’s gripping and dramatic tale of two men with a single dream is told bravely and in stunning detail by Tin Shed Theatre Co. who pride themselves in consistently re-inventing the ways in which stories can be told and they tackle this production from start to finish with skill and great heart, focusing heavily on the Steinbeck’s vivid characters.The company was formed in 2008 by Justin Cliffe, Georgina Harris & Antonio Rimola who created the company through a mutual passion to create a body of new and exciting work. “We want to introduce our self to strangers, be bold and brave. Amaze with a tale and transport audiences to a place that, although remains detached from the literal, can still enlighten our perceptions of the real world, all the same.” Justin Cliffe
