An Octopus Dream Theatre Company production in association with York Theatre Royal with writing by Mark Wheeler.
Good boys like Dan don’t die, do they?
Dan is cool, clever and smart. A talented, creative “lovely boy” with a passion for helping others who’s always on the side of the underdog. Everyone loves Dan, and at 16 he has plans, plenty of them - though losing his life isn’t one of them.
I Love You, Mum – I Promise I Won’t Die is the story of Dan, a popular South London schoolboy, who tragically died as a result of taking a lethal dose of ecstasy at an illegal rave. This fast-paced, powerful and emotionally-charged play tells the true story of what happened to Dan, the choices he made and the impact on his family and friends – all told in their own words, from tragedy to redemption.
Don’t miss Mark Wheeler’s beautifully-written play and Octopus Dream’s acclaimed production, touring to theatres across the country for the first time.
