EODS are presenting the classic masterpiece Of Mice and Men at The Birley Centre, Carlisle Road, Eastbourne, this week.

Based on the novel written by Nobel prize-winning author John Steinbeck, it tells the tragic story of George Milton and Lennie Small, two displaced migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in search of new job opportunities and chasing ‘the american dream’ during the Great Depression in California, USA.

Based on Steinbeck’s own experiences as a bindlestiff in the 1920s, the title is taken from Robert Burns’ poem “To a Mouse”.

With a strong cast of local actors and under direction by Cathryn Parker this is a production not to be missed.

Performances continue tonight (Friday) and Saturday (February 23) 7.30pm with a 2.30pm Saturday matinee.Tickets £12, concessions £10. Box Office: 07840473818, Email:
