Mother hopes film about son’s breakthrough will inspire others

From Jason Sandford at Mountain Xpress:

Chris Mueller-Medlicott joined a unique Durham theater group in 2005 and had a breakthrough.

Director Richard Riho had created what he called The Community Inclusive Theater Project, and he invited the young man with cerebral palsy to take part in a theater production. The experience brought Mueller-Medlicott new friends and a new voice in the form of an assisted typing method that helped him communicate.

Free Film Screening at Jubilee at 7 p.m. on March 7th. Workshop about being more inclusive on March 8 from 7-9 p.m. $10 donation suggested. More here.
