Of Mice & Men
SPORT FOR JOVE THEATRE COMPANY presents
Of Mice & Men

6 Aug 2015 to 8 Aug 2015

I seen hundreds of men come by on the road an’ on the ranches, with their bindles on their back an’ that same damn thing in their heads . . . every damn one of ’em’s got a little piece of land in his head. An’ never a God damn one of ’em ever gets it. Just like heaven. Ever’body wants a little piece of lan’. I read plenty of books out here. Nobody never gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land.”

Set in the desperation of the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men is one of the world’s most compelling tales of friendship and survival. George and Lenny are displaced migrant workers who dream of one day settling down on their own piece of land. Their shared vision of a better future and the strength of their friendship carry them through the loneliness, oppression and uncertainty of one of the world’s most profound eras of disillusionment. The play, adapted by John Steinbeck from his extraordinary novel, remains a stunning indictment, particularly in today’s era of economic, political and moral disillusionment, of how we treat our disenfranchised fringe dwellers, our migrant peoples and our most vulnerable.

Sydney Theatre Award Best Independent Production Award, 2011 (The Libertine), 2013 (Cyrano de Bergerac) and 2014 (All’s Well That Ends Well).
