C.S. Lewis On Stage: Further Up & Further In

Jun 22, 2024
4:00 PM


Using Lewis’ own words, this dazzling, multi-media theatrical event explores:

Why the BBC gave him a huge audience to deliver wartime talks that would become Mere Christianity.

How Hitler influenced the writing of The Screwtape Letters.

How his profound insights on the divinity of Christ, prayer, heaven, and the Second Coming influenced The Chronicles of Narnia.

Don’t miss this mesmerizing, one-of-a-kind stage experience that promises to take you further up and further in the heart and mind of C.S. Lewis.

The performance is followed by a post-show discussion with Max McLean.

Further Up and Further In run time is 90 minutes with no intermission. It is recommended for ages 13 and older, and children under age 4 are not admitted.
