Dig deep to help play hap­pen

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

JUTE Theatre is ask­ing au­di­ences to dig deep to help Dou­glas Robins share his story be­fore it is too late.

Dou­glas has a rare dis­ease called Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy, which af­fects around in 3500 males and re­sults in mus­cle de­gen­er­a­tion and even­tual death.

The aver­age life span for peo­ple with DMD is 25 years and now Dou­glas, who is 25, wants to share his story through theatre with his play Pro­pelled.

Pro­pelled will be a play fea­tur­ing Doug, it will give an in­sight into a life in a wheel­chair and help change the per­cep­tion of peo­ple with dis­abil­ity.

But he needs $11,000 to make it hap­pen.

For more in­for­ma­tion and to pledge to get Doug’s story onto the stage go to www.jute.com.au.
