Dear Peter,  

I hope this email finds you well. 

I wanted to reach to you about my extremely inspiring mother, Sue Wylie, and her play Kinetics - which I hope you may be able to help raise awareness of.

Six years ago my mother was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s - although it was obviously a challenging time in her life and continues to bring with it its difficulties, she has turned her unique experiences and story into a play which offers hope and inspiration - along with real insight as to what it is like living with a chronic condition. 

Last year the play toured across the South-West of England to great critical acclaim with the support of Arts Council funding. The one recurring comment made was that the play needed to be seen by a wider audience, with people from across the UK and US desperate to see it. 

We are therefore launching a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the necessary finance to turn the play into a short film. If there was any possibility of you spreading the awareness of her project through your blog - I would be so so grateful.

Thank you for your help in advance. 

Kind regards, 
Ben
