Modern-Prophet-coverimageModern Prophet was awarded to The Broadway Producer List as one of the Top 10 unproduced plays in NYC.

Against the backdrop of the oil fracking boom, an energy scavenger and his sister arrive at the river headwaters just east of Jordan. They soon learn they are not alone. A strange man roams the woods at night. He claims he carries the power of God.

Modern Prophet explores the nature of belief and steps into the crossroads where God’s will ends and human divinity begins.
