Production History

The Great Divorce
Based on the novel by C.S. Lewis
Adapted and Performed by Anthony Lawton
December 26, 2008 - January 4, 2009

Lewis' own favorite among his works, The Great Divorce is the story of Clive, a hapless professor, and the motley band of malcontents who join him on a very curious bus ride. Journeying between Hell and Heaven, Clive crosses a surprising, wildly inventive landscape drawn by Lewis' philosophical imagination. Satirical and comic, The Great Divorce is a wondrous ride filled with dazzling insight and language.

"Masterful solo show of a C.S. Lewis tale... this is a show for the season." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Unmissable! From the quiet, seemingly casual beginning to the unforgettable final moments, Lawton has us in the palm of his hand." –Philadelphia City Paper

"Brilliantly conceived and performed... as intelligent and provoking an evening as I've spent at the theater in a long time." –Broad Street Review
