Morning Readers, I’m Tracey West, one of the editors at Magic Oxygen Publishing.
We were enormously proud to publish Dear Mother, our first playscript and we suspect, the first of many great pieces by Mark James.
This powerful little one act play has caught the eye of the media and last week, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association published a smashing piece on their website and in their newsletter.
This week, Mark has pride of place in the Salisbury Lives feature in the prestigious Salisbury Life magazine.
Undoubtedly, the strong emotional story of boy to man that unfolds in Dear Mother, will continue to be told on stage for years to come. David Childs CBE and Founder of the National Memorial Arboretum was absolutely right when he said that one could do little better than to read or see Dear Mother; it’s a literary gem and is playing an important part with a collective of other great works that are helping our generation mark the start of WW1.
