Our featured book is one of the great classics of American 20th century literature - a novel that has immediate appeal to adults and young people alike.
The REP will be bringing this moving and tragic story to life during October in a play which was adapted for the stage by John Steinbeck from his own novel.
“Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don’t belong no place… With us it ain’t like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us.”
Of Mice And Men tells the story of two migrant farm workers in the USA, who go in search of new pastures, in the hope of attaining their shared dream: settling down on their own piece of land.
The pair are no strangers to trouble and they soon find themselves reeling from the fall out of an innocent misunderstanding which spirals out of control and leaves the two men, bound together by friendship, facing an earth-shattering decision.
Of Mice and Men will be showing at The REP from 10 October to 1 November 2014.
