Interview: Of Mice and Men's Kristian Phillips and William Rodell

26 January 2016

"Both of them are just incredible characters to play." Kristian and William talk about their roles as Lennie and George in John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. 

A few weeks back, we were at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, for day one of rehearsals for Of Mice and Men. Kristian Phillips and William Rodell found time to speak to us about their roles as Lennie and George in the production. We asked them how they were feeling going into rehearsals, and what they thought about playing Steinbeck's iconic characters. 

 

Of Mice and Men premieres at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, where it runs from 4 to 13 February 2016. It then tours to Cheltenham, Nottingham, Wolverhampton, Darlington, Blackpool, Cambridge, Brighton, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Oxford and Leicester where it concludes on 28 May.
