The safest road to hell is the gradual one
The Fellowship for the Performing Arts returns to New York this year with their critically praised stage adaptation of C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters, a witty and intriguing look at Christianity, human morality and the bureaucracy of Hell as experienced by the titular Screwtape, a senior Demon charged with the damnation of one young man.
Now the subject of a widely successful national tour, this version of the epistolary novel comes courtesy of Jeffrey Fiske and Max McLean, who, in line with the Fellowship's aims, have created a throughly modern and entertaining show that seeks to engage diverse audiences with Christianity and its themes. As Screwtape becomes increasingly desperate to eternally damn his quarry, his own, and his boss Satan's view on God and goodness are tested as the pesky human continues to defy him.
Cerebral, humorous and immaculately designed, don't miss this gem from a company that reveres Lewis and his worldview.
