HISTORY OF THE III
Our vision is built from, Andrei Schiller Chan's, close friendship with wrongfully convicted prisoner of thirty years, David McCallum III, after whom the company is named. Much of the wisdom the company encapsulates has been conducted through the collective knowledge and understanding David expresses to Andrei in their letter correspondence, and limited prison visit time. For not only is David a pinnacle of light, truth, and immense courage, he has taken great pains to overcome his physical and mental prison walls so as not to allow the environment to dictate the essence of his character. So in the founding of this company we hope that through the great life plays we choose, each truthful moment will give back a little power to David’s voice that until very recently, with the momentous effort of Innocence International, has so wrongfully been taken. David was exonerated in October 2014.
