David Tennant and Liam Brennan star in Donna Franceschild's dramatisation of John Steinbeck's seminal novel about migrant workers in Thirties California, whose dream of one day owning a place of their own is tragically destroyed.
Of Mice And Men explores the friendship between George Milton and Lennie Small via the last three days in Lennie's life.
On the run from a town where Lennie has been accused of rape, they pick up new jobs on a ranch further north – a place where the boss has recently married a flirtatious young woman.
She's trouble, however, and George knows it, so he warns Lennie about the woman. They dream about a better life – a life they think is just around the corner. The boss's wife then finds Lennie alone in the barn and their dream is ripped apart.
David Tennant stars as George Milton and Liam Brennan as Lennie Small. The cast also features Jude Akuwudike as Carlson/Crooks; Christopher Fairbank as Candy; Melody Grove as Curley's wife; Neil McKinven as Slim; and Richard Madden as Curley.
