I Love You Mum...

21st April 2022

Today our Year 10 BTEC Acting students met with Fiona Spargo-Mabbs who is central to the verbatim play they are currently studying; Fiona’s son, Daniel, died of a drug overdose in 2014. She now runs a Drug Awareness charity and continues to tell Dan’s story through Mark Wheeller’s fantastic play ‘I love you mum I promise I won’t die’.

The students showed Fiona scenes they have been working on and were able to engage in a question and answer session which has massively increased their understanding of the process of creating this unique production. The play is currently a GCSE set text studied by students all around the country. We thank Fiona for this amazing opportunity!
