Of Mice and Men tour dates announced

7 January 2016

Of Mice and Men returns to the stage in February 2016, opening at Birmingham Repertory Theatre and then touring to theatres across the UK.

Of Mice and MenJohn Steinbeck’s classic Of Mice and Men is touring across the UK in 2016 in a new co-production between Touring Consortium Theatre Company and Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The show opens at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 4 February 2016, with a national press night on 9 February, and touring the UK until May.

Two migrant farm workers held together by a mutual dependence, a deep affection and an undying loyalty go in search of new beginning in the hope of attaining their shared dream: of putting together enough money to buy a small piece of land and building a home. No strangers to trouble, George and Lennie soon find themselves reeling from the fallout of an innocent misunderstanding which spirals out of control and leaves the two men, bound together by friendship, facing an earth-shattering climax. A story, raw in speech and action, full of heart and unflinching realism, it remains one of the most poignant statements of being human our contemporary theatre has produced.

Of Mice and Men will be directed by Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s Artistic Director Roxana Silbert, with design by Liz Ascroft, lighting by Simon Bond, sound design and original composition by Nick Powell, and with Nick Pitt as Associate Director and Lucy Cullingford as Movement Director.

This play is a brilliant analysis of the way poverty creates isolation in people and isolation creates violence
Roxanna Silbert, Director

The cast will include Dave Fishley as ‘Crooks’, Nicholas Goode as ‘Whit’, Saoirse-Monica Jackson as ‘Curley’s Wife’ Neil McKinven as ‘Carlson / Boss’, Kristian Phillips as ‘Lennie’, Jonah Russell as ‘Slim’, and William Rodell as ‘George’, Ben Stott as ‘Curley’ and featuring Dudley Sutton as ‘Candy’.

Dudley Sutton is best known for his role in the BBC classic Lovejoy but is also a renowned stage actor who began his career starring in some of the most iconic plays of the sixties, including Jo Orton's Entertaining Mr Sloane and Tom Murphy's A Whistle In The Dark. Over the course of his career he has worked with legendary directors including Federico Fellini, Derek Jarman, Sally Potter and Ken Russell.

This production is the fifth in TCTC’s Arts Council funded Strategic Touring Programme. As part of this programme, we’ll be publishing interviews, videos, and learning resources exploring the creative process for the show. We’ll also be launching a new creative project for everyone to get involved in.
