Of Mice and Men from Broadway

Filmed theatre screenings, which have already streamed amazing National Theatre Live and RSC productions to the Merlin, now extend to Broadway productions.

On Sunday 22nd November at 3.00pm the theatre will show the hit Broadway production ‘Of Mice and Men’, filmed on stage in New York by National Theatre Live.

Golden Globe® winner and Academy Award® nominee James Franco (‘127 Hours’, ‘Milk’) and Tony Award® nominee Chris O’Dowd (‘Bridesmaids’, ‘Girls’) star in the highly-anticipated screenings of this ‘riveting, powerful production’ (Independent).

This landmark revival of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s play has been described a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.

The novella, published in 1937, has been adapted for film and stage and radio many times and has frequently been a ‘set book’ for GCSE. Set during the Great Depression in the USA, it tells the story of migrant workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, who move from place to place in search of employment.

Tickets are £16 and £10.50 concessions. Cert 12A 140 minutes. www.merlintheatre.co.uk
