We’re really excited to announce a new Theatre in Education company will be taking #iloveyoumumplay back on the road in 2020 for its fourth year of professional touring. Mark Wheeller’s moving verbatim play that tells Dan’s story, I Love You, Mum – I Promise I Won’t Die, will be out and about in schools, colleges and communities across London (and a few further flung places) from 16 January to 1st April, in the talented and more than capable hands of Wizard Theatre.
Wizard have twenty years of experience of successful Theatre in Education productions, taking a massive variety of plays into schools across the UK. StopWatch Theatre, whose powerful production of our play has reached around 38,000 young people over the last three years, sadly stopped operating in the summer, but have handed this production over to Wizard, with whom they’ve worked for many years.
We’re really happy to have Chris Dobson back again for the fourth year, this time as producer. Chris has been involved in all of the last three years’ tours, as cast member for two and puppeteer for all three. This year’s cast will be Amy Little (back from the 2019 tour), David Nation, Iona Johnson and Richard Blackman. Look out for more news in Spring!
