Salamander Street, an independent publisher based in Bristol, has acquired the backlist of plays by Mark Wheeller.
Publisher George Spender acquired world rights in all languages to six plays from Sophie Gorell Barnes at MBA Literary Agents. Salamander Street will publish new editions packaged with educational materials and additional downloadable content.
Missing Dan Nolan, Game Over, Too Much Punch for Judy, Chicken!, Chequered Flags for Chequered Futures and Hard to Swallow will be available from July 2020, in print and digital formats.
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."
Wheeller was previously published by Zinc Books and Cambridge University Press.
