Mind the Gap present Of Mice and Men at the Rose Theatre – SOLD OUT!

Tickets £9.00 / £7.00 concessions.

An extraordinary tale of friendship, loyalty and the power of dreams.

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.

Mind the Gap is an award-winning theatre company that works with learning disabled and non-disabled artists as equals.  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.
