Promethean Theatre Company is thrilled to be producing the play adaptation John Steinbeck’s hauntingly beautiful novel. This is the first Vancouver production of Of Mice and Men in six years, and the first production to feature an actor with disabilities portraying Lennie.
The project came about when director Gary Jones noticed the interactions between real-life best friends and actors Isaac Li and Elliott Hedley.
“There is a bond and a love between the two of them that one day had me look at them together, cock my head and muse to myself that they kind of reminded me of Lennie and George, albeit minus the tragedy,” says Jones.
Two years later, after hiring the ideal team and after mounds of administrative work to get the project off the ground, Jones’ dream project has come to life.
