Of Mice and Men
By John Steinbeck
Directed by Mathilde López
Lennie is strong and simple. George is short and sharp. They are migrant farm workers. It’s the Great Depression. It smells of sweat. Dogs get shot. Black people are lynched and women are whores. Lennie and George talk of living off the fat of the land, raising rabbits and auntie Clara’s blueberry pies.
Award winning company August 012 in collaboration with Hijinx will explore John Steinbeck’s American monolith, somewhere between documentary realism and the Bible, where Sergio Leone meets The Little House on the Prairie.
Recommended for ages 14+
+ BSL Interpretation by Sami Thorpe on Wednesday 25th
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the fact that we would like as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the BSL interpreted performance of Of Mice And Men we have chosen to change the date to the 25th of October. This means we do not clash with any other accessible performances happening across Cardiff that week. Please ensure you are booking the correct performance.
The schools-only performances on Monday 23 & Tuesday 24 and matinees on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 have now sold out. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to book schools groups for any remaining evening performances.
