Buried Deep - A New Musical

Drake University, Des Moines


"A mother and son live their stagnant and emotionally distant lives when someone bursts in with artifacts from their family's past. As these relics open up old wounds within their family, they must find a way to reconcile their identities despite the generational rift between them."

Music, lyrics, and book by Jeremy Berdin "Buried Deep" will be put up as a staged reading by Drake Theatre People.

Thanks to support from Drake Theatre People, Buried Deep had a successful virtual reading despite campus closures. With direction from Sydney Crutcher, accompaniment by Elaine Wedeking, and a wonderful cast, this musical has taken an important first step in its development.
