Speech and drama pupils recently took a trip to the cinema to see the American classic ‘Of Mice and Men’, written by John Steinbeck. The story is about two friends, George and Lennie, who travel from place to place in search of work. George is the more able of the two friends and takes care of Lennie who is a simple character, with unusual and often misunderstood tendencies. It is a thought-provoking and heart-warming play where death confronts friendship. “It brought tears to our eyes” said Grace Greaves.
