The Touring Consortium Theatre Company and Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s new tour of John Steinbeck’s classic OF MICE AND MEN, running at Curve from 23 to 28 May are looking for a senior dog to appear briefly on stage as ‘Candy’s Dog’. Due to Badger passing away from old age before rehearsals began, the producers are seeking an elderly dog in each city on the tour. Most breeds and sizes will be considered, but he or she should ideally look relatively elderly and have the appearance of a ‘working’ dog, and must have a calm temperament. The dog will be on stage for around 5 minutes in total, alongside Dudley Sutton, playing ‘Candy’ and on a lead at all times. No previous acting experience needed. The successful dog and owner will be required 6.00-9.00pm TUESDAY, 7.00-9.00pm WEDNESDAY – SATURDAY of the run, and 2.00- 3.30pm for the Wednesday and Saturday matinees. Interested parties should apply immediately to Janice Taylor Via email: [email protected] or telephone 0844 5880 848. About OF MICE AND MEN Two migrant farm workers held together by a mutual dependence, a deep affection and an undying loyalty go in search of new beginning in the hope of attaining their shared dream: of putting together enough money to buy a small piece of land and building a home. No strangers to trouble, George and Lennie soon find themselves reeling from the fallout of an innocent misunderstanding which spirals out of control and leaves the two men, bound together byfriendship, facing an earth-shattering climax. A story, raw in speech and action, full of heart and unflinching realism, itremains one of the most poignant statements of being human our contemporary theatre has produced. OF MICE AND MEN will be directed by Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s Artistic Director Roxana Silbert, with designbyLiz Ascroft, lighting by Simon Bond, sound design and original composition by Nick Powell, and with Nick Pitt as Associate Director and Lucy Cullingfordas Movement Director.
