Bloomsbury to publish our play!

20 June 2016

We’re delighted to announce that Bloomsbury will be publishing the play we commissioned Mark Wheeller to write about Dan, ‘I Love You Mum, I Promise I Won’t Die’. Bloomsbury is not only a major international publishing house, and of course the publisher of the Harry Potter books amongst many other incredibly successful titles and authors, but is also a leading publisher of drama and performance texts. There is a very rigorous process of selection, especially with such a prestigious publisher, and the percentage of texts that get approved for publication out of the enormous number submitted is tiny, so this is a fantastic endorsement of the quality of Mark’s writing, and a great indicator of the future success of the play. 

They plan to publish it as part of their Methuen Plays for Young People and Schools series, very much a go-to list for drama teachers. Out for the new school year in September 2017, so a little wait, but fantastic news nevertheless!
