Of Mice And Men

By John Steinbeck
Directed by Mike Savill

One of Steinbeck’s most acclaimed works, voted Best Play by New York Drama Critics, and well known to many school leavers of a certain age,  this American classic has been a long term ambition of mine to direct. The best laid plans of Mike and men have, however, oft gone awry, with the rights being unavailable pretty much consistently for the last four years. All things come to those who wait though, and at the end of 2016 the opportunity to put on this classic narrative became available. So now I hope to bring its  powerful drama to the BLT stage.

The play chronicles four days in the lives of migrant workers, George and Lennie.  Unlikely friends, they move from town to town hoping to work and save enough to own their own piece of land.  But Lennie stirs up trouble, and George must choose between his friend and his dream.  This vivid picture of the Great Depression conveys a tale of friendship, loneliness and unfortunate circumstances for even “the best laid schemes of mice and men.”
