The Play: Set against the harsh backdrop of the Great Depression, Of Mice and Men is the story of George and Lennie, two friends with a simple dream: to own a farm and live off the fat of the land. There are times, though, when sharpwitted George feels the burden of looking after Lennie, while gentle giant Lennie doesn't realise his own strength... As they drift from job to job, trouble's never far away, and before long it's time to move on again. When the pair get work in Soledad, California, however, the dream looks set to become a reality. But a tragic turn of events threatens to destroy George and Lennie's friendship and leaves George faced with an impossible choice... Source Horizon - 15/01/08

Jacqueline will be playing Amanda in 'Fuchsia' by Matthew Westwood at the White Bear Theatre Club, Kennington, London SE11 from 3/22 February 2009.

'Fuchsia' is a brand new play by Matthew Westwood. He had always wanted Jacqueline to play the part of Amanda - a woman who runs a certain type of nightclub and to whom others are drawn, like moths to a flame - even before meeting her, but after they met he decided to completely re-write the play to expand the part of Amanda, knowing there was no-one else who could possibly play her. Jacqueline was so flattered by this, and so impressed with the play, that she agreed to return to the cold British winter away from her beloved monkeys to play the part.
