Lowcountry (assisted) Living

Book & Lyrics by Brad Erickson
Music & Lyrics by Min Kahng

Milt and Alice like to think of themselves as a spry, independent couple living a good life in Charleston, SC, but their adult children Brent and Julie are starting to see their parents' increasing need for assistance. With a country-music-infused score, Lowcountry (assisted) Living explores how the pressures of elder care simultaneously draw the disparate family together and threaten to upturn their lives and tear them apart. This story sprang from the lived experience of Brad Erickson’s own aging parents.

Lowcountry (assisted) Living is still in development. For updates on the next phase of progress for this project, please sign up for my monthly newsletter.
