"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."

The Jack's Autumn season opens with Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck's classic tragedy of friendships formed and dreams dashed.

Set against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men follows two migrant ranch hands that form an unusual bond amid a lifestyle of hard labour and intense loneliness. Lennie, a simple-minded giant, and tough-talking George dream of settling in a place they could at last call home, where they could tend rabbits and 'live off the fat of the land'.

But their best laid plans go awry when their hot-headed boss and his flirtatious wife court Lennie's unintentional capacity for violence, setting their grand plans spiraling towards tragedy.

Tanith Lindon 's past directing credits at the theatre include Hamlet, Scratch and Starters for Ten.
