Coming to a venue near you, an award-winning version of John Steinbeck’s extraordinary tale of friendship, loyalty and the power of dreams.
This original and inspiring re-telling was the first to feature a full cast of actors with a learning disability and was staged to wide critical acclaim by Mind the Gap in 2000, 2001 and 2005.

George and Lennie are drifters who have only each other and their shared search for the American Dream. George is the sharp little guy who looks out for Lennie. Lennie is his big-hearted companion who, unaware of his own strength, seems unable to keep out of trouble.
Finding work on a ranch in California, they plan to stay long enough to buy a little place of their own… but their arrival triggers a tragic chain of events that threatens to destroy the very dream that unites them.
“This is scorching Steinbeck”
Charles Hutchinson, York Evening Press
“Blows away previous patronising portrayals of learning disabled characters.”
