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