Mind the Gap, the UK's leading theatre company working with learning disabled artists, returns to Jacksons Lane arts centre in London with a brand new production. On the Verge, An American Odyssey is a unique new show charting the epic voyage of a man, a Harley and the legendary Route 66.

In this hour long show, Jez Colborne, a versatile and talented learning disabled performer, tells us what happened when he rode pillion on a Harley down Route 66 to discover America. He shares his experiences through film of the road trip along with interviews with people he met on the way. Anecdotes and original music inspired by his journey complete the telling of this story of a once in a lifetime trip.

The show will be performed on Friday 12 May at 2.00pm and 8.00pm, both BSL interpreted, and Saturday 13 May at 8.00pm.
