King James Live

On the first night of Content2020 Film Festival & Media Summit I "happened" to sit next to Ashley Strand, and we discovered that we both perform one-man plays. 

He had just started performing The Book of Mark, inspired by Alec McCowan, who I'd seen perform it at The Lamb's Theatre in the 90s. Then the lockdowns canceled many of his bookings, so he used his unique apartment as his stage and recorded it... all of it... in a single take! 

Joyce and I watched it last night and just loved it! It's absolutely brilliant! The thoughtful use of the space with actor and camera (by Katherine Carr, who co-directed with Ashley) was mesmerizing.
