Babytalk was first presented in a private, but important, industry-only reading at The Tank on May 20, 2019.
Babytalk is an intensely personal love letter from Kev to his mom Maggi, who passed away when he was 7. As Kev was growing up, Maggi kept a journal that meticulously recorded all of the funny and poignant things Kev and his sister Bridget said as they discovered language and the world around them. Part musical, part poetry, part documentary, Babytalk investigates the responsibility of language in holding the memories of the ones we love.
