Steinbeck’s iconic tale of two itinerant workers in depression-era California, Of Mice and Men is the heartbreaking story of friendship, dreams and sacrifice. The profoundly moving story of George and Lennie – an unlikely pair caught in a world of relentless work and little promise – who dream of one day having a farm of their own and to live off the “fat o’ the land”. Based on Steinbeck’s novella of the same name, this classic play remains one of the most enduring works of the 20th century.

Director Brian Richmond will again join forces with long time collaborators and actors Gary Farmer (best known for his co-starring role alongside Johnny Depp in Jim Jarmusch’s film Dead Man) and veteran actor David Ferry. Farmer will play Lennie and Ferry George. They will be joined by a highly talented cast that includes well-known local actor Brian Linds as Candy, Sebastien Archibald as Whit, Michael Armstrong as Carlson, Ashley O’Connell as Curly and Samantha Richard as Curly’s Wife. Pacific Opera Victoria’s Director of Artistic Administration Ian Rye will design the set, Patricia Reilly the costumes and Rebekah Johnson the lights.
