Hospital welcome for Killer Cure!
The wheelchair store at Middlesbrough General Hospital is set for the small screen in a new production, Killer Cure.
The film is the latest offering from Shoot Your Mouth Off, which began life as part of Cleveland Arts' Articulate programme, which runs projects involving, inspired by and relating to disabled people.
A black comedy, Killer Cure, stars three people with cerebral palsy - John Partlett, Karen Kelly and Anthony Bassett - as its action heroes, with Karen Sheader and John Billon making up the rest of the cast.
Karen Sheader said the film is about Glenda, a possessed woman who decides to rid the country of disabled people.
"It has a happy ending though - at least for some of the cast," she said.
"The old wheelchair store is a perfect set and we're really pleased to have so much support from the hospital."
Hospital spokeswoman Claire Young added: "We're delighted to welcome the cast and crew of Killer Cure into the hospital.
"It's not always possible to accommodate this type of thing but, because we're gradually moving everything from here over to The James Cook University Hospital, we've been able to move things around a bit and provide this space.
"We're pleased to work with Shoot Your Mouth Off, its production crew and cast and hope the film does well when it goes on release."
