We are delighted to announce the publication of six plays by Mark Wheeller, the UK’s most performed living playwright. An early pioneer of the verbatim form, Mark’s work has been a staple of the Drama curriculum both in the UK and abroad for the past three decades.
Too Much Punch For Judy has been performed over 6,000 times and Chicken! nearly 6,000. Missing Dan Nolan and Hard to Swallow are both set texts for the GSCE Drama 9-1 exams. Chequered Flags to Chequered Futures tells the true story of Chris Gilfoy, the Rookie’s World Champion Banger Racer in 2000. The play tells the fast-paced story through the words of Chris and his family with great opportunities for imaginative ensemble work. Mark’s play Game Over, tells the harrowing story of teenager Breck Bednar, who was groomed over the internet and brutally murdered on 17 February 2014 by someone he met online.
Mark Wheeller commented: ‘My lockdown will for ever be notable by the fact that it was in this time that my connection with George and those at Salamander Street started. It provides a new and incredibly exciting chapter for my plays and associated work… it’s almost like a fairy tale for plays that began in school drama studios with literally no budget other than ambition.’
Salamander Street, launching August 2020, is open for submissions in the fields of theatre, performance and live art. We are particularly interested in artists who are interested in examining the nature of a performance document, ‘lost’ or classic Scottish theatre that may have gone out of print or never been published, and large cast plays suitable for schools and drama colleges.
