The Screwtape Letters
Adapted by and starring Anthony Lawton
From the novel by C.S. Lewis
January 2 - 13, 2008

In a dark corner of Hell's bureaucracy sits mid-level demon Screwtape, scratching out letters to his nephew, Wormwood, filled with advice on how to corrupt a human soul. "Bring us back food or be food yourself," Screwtape tells him. Gleefully, Screwtape catalogues the list of human frailties upon which Wormwood is to prey – war, lust, debauchery, decadence, and all sorts of wickedness. This rollicking adaptation by Anthony Lawton turns this revered classic into a multi-media event sparkling with music, dance, and infernal unpredictability.

"The Screwtape Letters is a play everyone will enjoy. A dynamic duo indeed!" –Weekly Press  [More]

"Simple yet effective, philosophical yet funny and accessible. The questions it asks about our human capacity for love, so baffling to the demons, are the heart of the show." –EDGE Philadelphia  [More]

"Lawton's energetic version succeeds... Clever and insightful!" –Philadelphia City Paper
