“Someone told me I couldn’t… is the simple answer! Honestly, I've never felt like I really fit in with creatives in the theatre community in Britain. Unless you are one of the big dogs or are from a certain background, you are just someone looking in on it, never with a chance of really being part of it, so I thought I’d make my own world & that’s what I’ve been doing since I graduated.”
- Emil Dale
How do you carry grief? Or is it better left buried? Never a bigger or more relevant question after a global pandemic.
Do you think we will ever NOT need to tell stories that remind humans to accept people for who they are regardless of all their beautiful differences?
In KIN The Musical, our protagonist Noah learns the power of letting go of the past,grief, trauma and the lies he tells himself. Isn’t that really the only way to be able to truly move forward and live the full life you deserve?
Give up the ghost. Give up hate people made you feel. The most human lesson of them all.
Firstly, think ‘Stranger Things’, then think about a hooky original musical score that fuses 80’s Synth, New Wave Pop, Rock and Contemporary Musical Theatre. It feels totally familiar, but at the same time completely fresh and new!
Think... ‘STRANGER THINGS’ meets ‘BLOOD BROTHERS’ meets ‘HADESTOWN’
Think Fall in America. Leaves. Halloween. Goonies. ET. Torches. BMX bikes. Handheld radios. A huge rock-face that actors can climb, making up the wings, cyc and even the pros.
Imagine an epic Steven Spielberg film as a musical, set in the 80’s, inspired by real life events, with a completely original story, yet everything will feel as new, truthful, real and beautifully put together as a perfectly formed NETFLIX documentary, in style and currency.
Noah, a skilled rock climber, is broken & physically scarred after a tragic accident but Ashville, the small southern American town he lives in, has other problems!
The Kinship, a controversial community attracting people from all over the world, has purchased an old ranch in the little town, causing unthinkable conflict with the townsfolk. Misfit Noah, the mayor’s son, desperate to prove himself to his father, is forced to take matters into his own hands and save the town from disaster. Noah climbs down the side of the cliff, the only entrance and secretly joins the community. What Noah doesn’t know, is that Cora, a Kinsperson, is going to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And what neither of them know, is that they are going to change each other’s lives forever.
Emil started writing Kin in 2018. We’ve now completed 2 sold out concerts at The Other Palace London and the first workshop production run with 7 sold out performances at the Factory Playhouse Theatre Hitchin. We are currently in the middle of new re-writes and hoping for another workshop production next year in 2023.
