Kodachrome

Love in Living Color

Welcome to Colchester, a small town of dashed dreams, fervent hope, and a history of longing. There’s a hardware store, too.

Suzanne, the resident photographer, curates a living album of her town’s undetected devotion. Will the stories she illuminates bring resolution to her own missed connection? Capture love as it appears in unlikely places and ordinary moments with the surprising grace of extraordinary timing.

Evergreen

Evergreen

Our Scripts on Fire Winner 2018

At the Evergreen, a rural diner off the beaten track, an ex-pastor with a broken marriage takes pains to rebuild his life in a refuge of solitude. But when an inquisitive customer divines information a littler too close to home, two strangers wrestle with a series of coincidences and the significance behind their connection. A story of unexpected intersection and stumbling upon someone who has strength to make you stronger.

By Krista Marushy
Directed by Barrett Hileman

How to Tell a Good Story with
Your Life

How to Tell a Good Story with Your Life

A Workshop with Val Lieske

All of the elements needed to write a good story are the same elements needed to live a good life. Conflict. Character development. Risk. Love. Sacrifice.

Find out what scares you, what inspires you, what motivates you and then write them into your story.

If you aren’t telling a good story, nobody thinks you died too soon; they just think you died.” – Donald Miller

Sacrament

Sacrament

Our Scripts on Fire Winner 2017

In the heart of a city gripped by a deadly epidemic, Father Caleb opens his church to offer people hope. But soon the people taking Mass no longer suffer sickness. When a leading scientist comes to investigate the miracle, an unexpected reunion turns into a showdown between divergent world views fighting for the future of humanity. Is the cure in the wine, or in the faith of the people? A gripping illustration of a complex and whole-hearted search for healing.

Every Brilliant Thing

Every Brilliant Thing

Life is where you look for it.

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s done something stupid. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon the list will take on a life of its own…

An astonishing comedy about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.

By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahue
Directed by Stephan Waldschmidt
Featuring Jenna-Lee Hyde

Critic’s Pick – New York Times
Critic’s Choice – Los Angeles Times

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious… possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” – The Guardian (4 Stars)
