OF MICE AND MEN
"A guy needs somebody - to be near him. Don't make no difference who the guy is, long's he's with you”
Mice and Men tells the story of George Milton and Lenny Small, two very different men bound together by providence. Set against the backdrop of the American Great Depression, our hapless protagonists hatch a plan to leave their life of poverty behind and start anew. It seems so simple, and perhaps that’s what is so beautiful about it, but little do they know, fate still has a hand to play.
Based on John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men this play barely needs an introduction. Since its first début on stage in the November of 1937 it has become staple in British theatre, and although many audiences have seen it before, they simple joy of its writing, through to the build up of its climactic end never fail to entertain and move audiences new and old to the story.
We've been performing the piece in schools for 4 years now recieving praise from both students and teaching staff.
AN INSPECTOR CALLS
An evening’s celebration in a prosperous family household is interrupted by a late night caller. A man introducing himself as a Police Inspector. He has come to make enquiries about a young girls suicide, and from the moment he arrives an intrinsically woven thread of suspense, accusation, secrets and suspicion begins to unravel as we quickly learn that not everyone is as innocent as they may seem.
J.B Priestley’s exciting detective thriller is enacted piece by piece by Tin Shed Theatre Co. with skill and dramatic precision managing to balance the strangeness of the Inspector against the naturalism of the piece, exploring the mysterious case and focusing heavily on J.B Priestley’s strong themes of common responsibility and the importance of community.
We produced this piece last year and successfully toured it to over 40 schools nation wide.
