Mayflower II

Joyce and I performed the rolls of Ferris and Danae Chapman in this outstanding film shot in and near Calgary.

You can now watch it:

Note from the present: Though we performed in it six years ago, it feels like it was written this summer!

This is the fourth time we've played husband and wife, and the third this year!

Our characters are the parents of a young man who turns us in for being Christians, and I actually coached Jeremiah McFarland, who plays that young man for his audition as a part of the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp in Norwood, CO in June. His sister, Hannah, also went up to play a member of our cell group, an illegal Bible study in a futuristic world where North Americans must read from a government-approved Bible and attend an official church.

Nathan Clarkson played a government official. He was an acting student of mine in 2005, the first year I directed the theatre program. I performed in his film Confessions of a Prodigal Son, starring Kevin Sorbo, almost exactly a year earlier than Mayflower II.

Here's Joyce's report on the project to our home church, Westchester Chapel:
