David To Appear In Radio 4's Of Mice And Men

David Tennant is to star in a BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men.

The Doctor Who star will play George Milton opposite Liam Brennan as Lennie Small in the story of two migrant workers in 1930s California whose dream of owning a place of their own is destroyed.

Steinbeck's seminal novella has been adapted by writer and dramatist Donna Franceschild, who worked with Tennant on BBC2 drama Takin' Over the Asylum, in which he starred with Ken Stott in 1994.


Of Mice and Men will air in Radio 4's Classic Serial slot early next year.

Tennant's previous Radio 4 plays have included The Wooden Overcoat by Pamela Branch in the Saturday play slot in 2007.

A BBC Scotland Radio Drama production, Of Mice and Men will co-star Jude Akuwudike, Christopher Fairbank, Melody Grove, Neil McKinven and Richard Madden. It is produced by Kirsty Williams.
