Theatre in Education Tour

Help us raise the money we need to take our play, ‘I Love You Mum, I Promise I Won’t
Die’, to schools and young people across the UK.

In May 2014 the DSM Foundation commissioned award winning playwright Mark Wheeller to write a play about what happened to Dan. Drama is an incredibly powerful way to communicate important messages to young people, and the play has become a core part of our vision to enable young people to understand the risks, and potential consequences and impact of experimenting with drugs.

Mark writes powerfully for young people, his plays are on GCSE drama syllabuses, and are widely taught and performed in schools across the world. He has used verbatim theatre to take the real words of Dan’s family and friends and transform them into a play, which has brought the audience to tears at each of its performances. Reviews have overwhelmingly positive.

£10,000 will pay initial set up costs - to adapt for touring, to write educational workshops, and to recruit and rehearse a cast of actors.

£4,000 will pay for a week of performances in schools (10 performances over five days). The more we can raise, the more schools and young people we can reach with this powerful and important message.

Fiona. I was so pleased to hear you on TRE today in Spain. Rick S has kept me informed of what you are doing. I am David S's sister-in-law and was devastated at the news. All the best with your good work.
