Darren O’Sullivan, who has just had a play published, My Lot – a Two Act Comedy, teaches GCSE and BTEC drama and performing arts students at the Sir John Gleed School and the Post 16 Centre in Spalding.

He says the students are “really quite excited” to be able to work with his play.

Darren said: “The school is quite keen as well because the writer is on hand to help the young people to develop it fully.”

The author says it is actors and people involved in theatre in some capacity who mainly read plays.

He says: “Ninety per cent of the sales are going to come from people interested in theatre or directing or actors.

“If it works in the Post 16 Centre I have contacts with other schools and I am going to send copies to them, and to theatres.”

This is Darren’s second published work: his children’s book, The Sleep Taker, about a boy who believes a strange old man has stolen his sleep, was published last year.
