David Tennant in 'Of Mice and Men' (UPDATED)

David Tennant plays the role of 'George' in an audio dramatisation of John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' for BBC Radio 4's 'Classical Serial' slot at 3.00pm today.

David Tennant and Liam Brennan star in Donna Franceschild's dramatisation of John Steinbeck's seminal novel about migrant workers in Thirties California, whose dream of one day owning a place of their own is tragically destroyed.

Of Mice And Men explores the friendship between George Milton and Lennie Small via the last three days in Lennie's life.

On the run from a town where Lennie has been accused of rape, they pick up new jobs on a ranch further north – a place where the boss has recently married a flirtatious young woman.

She's trouble, however, and George knows it, so he warns Lennie about the woman. They dream about a better life – a life they think is just around the corner. The boss's wife then finds Lennie alone in the barn and their dream is ripped apart.

BBC Radio 4 is available online live via the BBC iPlayer.
