An extraordinary tale of friendship, loyalty and the power of dreams. John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men retold by Mike Kenny performed across the UK in 2000, 2001, 2005 and 2011
This original and inspiring re-telling was the first to feature learning disabled actors in the role of Lennie and was staged with an integrated cast to wide critical acclaim by Mind the Gap in 2000, 2001, 2005 and 2011.
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.
