The Great Divorce
ONE WEEK ONLY!
By C.S. Lewis
Adapted and Performed by Anthony Lawton
February 7 - 12, 2012
C.S. Lewis' own favorite among his works, The Great Divorce tells the satiric and comic tale of hapless professor Clive and the motley band of malcontents who join him on a very curious bus ride. Journeying between Hell and Heaven, Clive crosses a wildly inventive landscape drawn by Lewis' philosophical imagination in a story filled with dazzling language and surprising insight.
