“Doug is right though, we all have a story. I urge you to hear Doug’s.” — Kylie Reghenzani, Tablelands Advertiser/Tablelander


Synopsis: Doug is 25 years old. He likes football, partying with his mates, and girls. He’s pretty much your average guy except for one big difference. Doug has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and negotiates life’s twists and turns in a wheel chair. Armed with a whole lot of smarts, an impressive capacity for patience and a keen awareness of life’s absurdities, Doug takes a heroic journey into the liminal worlds between boy and man, man and machine, the real and the fantastical, to discover who he is, and in the process finds a path uniquely his own.

Production History: Propelled was first performed 31 January, 2014 at the JUTE Theatre Company, Centre of Contemporary Arts, Cairns, Queensland.
