Mrs. Kelly's Journey Home
A story with heart, humor and dementia
Mrs. Kelly’s Journey Home is a new play written and performed by Breeda Miller. Laced with humor and heartache, we journey with Breeda and her mother (along with a few other choice characters) through immigration from Ireland, becoming Americans, building a family, caregiving and dementia. It’s an engaging story that will fill your heart and might make your eyes leak a bit.
In development now and throughout the summer of 2021, live performances will begin with a world premiere in Michigan in the fall of 2021.
