What can a teenage boy who is into free running and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson’s possibly have in common?
The desire to move….
Kinetics is based on the remarkable true story of two people seemingly at polar opposites. As Rose tries to come to terms with her diagnosis, an unlikely friendship springs up when Lukas comes tumbling into her life. But will the bond between them be strong enough when things go wrong?
Kinetics was written by Dorchester-based actor and writer Sue Wylie in reaction to her diagnosis with early-onset Parkinson’s. As a stage play it has toured the South West and London, selling more than 1500 tickets and receiving phenomenal feedback from audiences and medical professionals alike, for its bravery, honesty, humour and passion.
This film version will not only take the play to a wider audience but is also being used as a training and information resource for Parkinson’s nurses, carers, doctors and medical students.
About the stage version:
This is an amazing story that needs to be told. (Dorset Echo)
Watching your play was a very emotional experience for me, as much of what you are saying is how my journey has been…a wonderful vehicle to give the public a real insight to living with Parkinson’s. (Audience feedback)
Extremely brave and well constructed. Should be compulsory viewing for anyone caring for those with Parkinson’s. (Audience feedback)
