Excerpt from The Strawberry Confession

The Strawberry Confession, produced in 2008, is a comedy about a woman and her priest. Who knew that she had enough sin in her life to warrant a daily trip to the confessional booth? And how do you classify just exactly what is and what isn’t a sin?

Wayne Nicklas plays the priest, with Darcy Fehr, Susanna Portnoy and Judy Cook rounding out the cast.

Writer/Director – Talia Pura. Cinematographer – Jason Heke. Sound – Brock Capel. Editor – Craig Guiboch. Acting Coach – Nancy Drake
