Directed by Tim Crow
This West End and Broadway hit stage adaptation of William Nicholson’s award-winning TV play is the poignant, humorous, unsentimental and ultimately optimistic love story of C. S. Lewis – shy Oxford don and author of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters – and American poet Joy Davidman. Jack Lewis is smug in his convictions about God and his plan for the world until Joy and her young son enter his life and the bewildered theoretician of love in the abstract, finally confronts its direct presence. Set in the enclave of academic Oxford in the 1950s, their relationship starts as an exchange of literary correspondence. When Joy arrives in Oxford, her intellectual assertiveness delights and refreshes Lewis, but appals his condescending fellow academics who are further shocked when Lewis goes through a marriage of convenience with her for immigration purposes. From tentative beginnings, their friendship develops into a deep, abiding love.
This production of Shadowlands is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
