Prodigal God. The musical tale of two brothers and one wastefully extravagant father. A new musical experience based on the familiar parable as seen through the eyes of the elder brother.




Thereʼs nothing like the power of a good story to transport us to another world. Some stories carry a delightful weightiness which can deliver us back to the real world with a deep sense of satisfaction and a suspicion that weʼve lost something valuable on the return trip. So back into the story we must go. Again and again.

The parable about a father who had two sons, as found in the gospel of Luke, is one such story. For millennia, people from every part of the earth have traveled ʻthere and back againʼ, finding comfort, hope, and – if theyʼre really paying attention – offense. Prodigal God depicts what happens when one brother pushes the limits of their fatherʼs wasteful extravagance.


Brian speaks to the Prodigal God Supporters about the marketing approach and why we choose to distribute the project ourselves.

In the past year, I’ve done more writing than I have since the first time I was in grad school some 20 years ago. Blog writing. Playwriting (or to spell it like it is: playrewriting). Screenplay writing and rewriting. And, most recently, the…

Many Daughters

There once was a man who had…. 5 daughters. (You might be thinking of Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof, and to be honest, so were we at times.)

From the beginning, Brian and I were mindful we faced a gender problem in choosing to dramatize the…

Who is this young woman and why has she entered our story uninvited?

Her journey is the inverse of the Younger Son who barges into her story uninvited. He begins with everything and loses all hope in a distant land. She begins with nothing but hope…
