Can't Believe I'm Saying This to My Mum: Mark Wheeller Contemporary Duologues (Paperback)
A varied collection of 30 contemporary duologues from Mark Wheeller's plays. Compiled at a time when social distancing is a consideration, these duologues all lend themselves to Zoom/Social Distance friendly performances. It includes duologues from: Too Much Punch For Judy Hard To Swallow Missing Dan Nolan I Love You, Mum - I Promise I Won't Die Game Over ... and many more of Mark's plays... and musicals. It also includes a previously unpublished self-contained short Sibling Saviours. All these duologues are suitable for young people to use for classroom or audition use. Despite many being ostensibly for adult performers they are all tried and tested for young people to use with amazing results. There has never before been a collection of exclusively Mark Wheeller duologues.
