'I Love You, Mum – I Promise I Won’t Die' is a verbatim play, written by acclaimed playwright Mark Wheeller and published by Bloomsbury. It tells the story of Daniel Spargo-Mabbs who tragically died at the age of 16 from an overdose of MDMA. Actors from the Wizard Theatre company brought the play to St Martin's and gave our students a challenging and impactful performance which was also deeply moving. Its powerful message stressed the importance of making informed decisions and gave them some useful tools for putting those decisions into practice in a pressurised situation.
The Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation aims to support young people to make safe choices about drugs.
