Theatre tour - Summer 2023

The full-length version of 'I Love You, Mum - I Promise I Won't Die' will be touring professional theatres in England in summer 2023.

Theatre tour

We’re incredibly excited about this next chapter of the ‘I Love You Mum’ adventure. Octopus Dream Theatre Company are touring a new professional production of the full published play (not the shorter, Theatre in Education production seen in schools), and this very first tour of England’s professional theatres will bring our play to a whole different set of audiences. We very much hope these will include parents and teenagers, experiencing this moving production together, with all its important messages, and going away with lots to talk about together at home about making safer choices about drugs.

Octopus Dream Theatre Company will be performing the play in 10 locations across England from mid-May to mid-June. The full schedule is available here
