This poignant and eminently readable biography of the play is drawn from interviews with Dan's family, friends and the OYT company.

This project is a collaboration between Wizard and the DSM foundation, a drug education charity working with young people, parents, teachers and professionals across the UK. Matt Sykes-Hooban’s set design is simple but used effectively to show a variety of locations including an interview room, a house, a warehouse and a hospital.A verbatim play written by Mark Wheeller using the testimonies of Daniel Spargo-Mabbs’ friends and family. After 33 extraordinary years, Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black will haunt the stage of the Fortune Theatre for the final time, as the production ends in the West End on Saturday 4th March 2023. His plays are extensively used in the drama curriculum in schools, he has been one of the playwrights recommended in the Edexcel GCSE drama syllabus for many years. Predicated partly on Black History Month, Elayne Ogbeta’s muliti-layered play presents Grandad (Marcus Hercules) and his primary school age granddaughter, Abi (Jazmine Wilkinson) in his garden.

I Love You, Mum - I Promise I Won't Die , was originally commissioned by the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation , the drug education charity. This book offers a unique and useful guide for teaching/studying this play and includes a detailed scheme of work for teachers using the play as a set text in the EDUQAS GCSE Drama examination. I Love You, Mum – I Promise I Won’t Dietells the story of Daniel Spargo-Mabbs and his heartbreaking and entirely unnecessary death.

We’re delighted that from September 2022 the play will be one of seven set texts on the Eduqas GCSE drama syllabus, alongside Shakespeare, JB Priestly, Malorie Blackman and Benjamin Zephaniah. It has been an amazing journey and I am looking forward to the Theatres reopening next week (from 17th May 2021). It is far from a preachy ‘Don't Take Drugs’, PSHE-style lecture though, and as a dramatic work it serves as much more.

Students will learn that there's always a choice and that the risks associated with drug use are incredibly high. Scott-Ward and Colley become the parents, Zoldan Jenna and Radford Jacob, the elder brother, as we explore the heartbreak of the next few days – and beyond. Alongside the verbatim testimonies of school pals, girlfriends, teachers and family are the more experimental segments that pull audiences into specific moments. This first tour to theatres is taking the play to a whole new audience outside schools, where it’s been touring for the last few years.

The fact that Dan’s family shares their true story with Mark Wheeller and this theatre company, is generous and heartfelt – and by doing so they hope it will help others to understand what happened and to learn from this experience and how to avoid it. A GCSE Drama Set Text from September 2022, the book features the origins of the play and a useful scheme of work for teachers. Dan’s parents share his childhood milestones and joys, growing up in a loving family, and how he made one mistake. There is a range of resources available for anyone working with the play, whether in drama lessons, school, college or youth theatre performances, or studying it for GCSE or BTEC assessments. Two of his plays, ‘Hard to Swallow’ and ‘Missing Dan Nolan’, have been set texts on two out of four of the GCSE drama (9-1) specifications from 2016- 2023.
