The praise just keeps coming for award-winning tenor Anthony Dean Griffey. Now, at last, he makes his Melbourne debut in a signature role, Lennie, in Carlisle Floyd’s Of Mice and Men.
George and Lennie are migrant farmhands during the Great Depression. Their only home is a communal bunkhouse under the lonely prairie skies. But they are different to their fellow workers. They have a plan, a dream of buying a farm and making a life. If, that is, George can keep Lennie, who has the strength of a giant, but the mind of a child, out of trouble...
