Company stages Steinbeck

7th April 2000 at 01:00
The tragedy of George and Lennie in John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' inspired Tim Wheeler to co-found Mind the Gap, a Bradford-based theatre company for actors with a learning disability, 10 years ago. Now it is touring an adaptation of the novel, which is a listed text for GCSE, as it first play for mainstream audiences. Three professional actors are among the cast: Ysabel Collyer (above) plays the prostitute Lennie confides in, with Kevin Pringle playing Lennie. For details of tour dates and Making Waves, Mind the Gap's training scheme, tel: 01274 544683.
