Book & Lyrics by Brad Erickson
Music & Lyrics by Min Kahng
Mitch and Ellen like to think of themselves as a spry, independent couple living a good life in Charleston, SC, but their adult children Brent and Judy are starting to see their parents' increasing need for assistance. With a country-music-infused score, Kinda Home 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 parents.
Kinda Home is still in development. For updates on the next phase of progress for this project, please sign up for my monthly newsletter.
