The most critically acclaimed production of C.S. Lewis’ masterpiece is back, and coming to Hexham Community Church…
The Screwtape Letters is an award-winning satirical comedy that is now touring the UK for its 9th year. Nigel Forde’s “sparkling script” and David Robinson’s “impressive Screwtape” (The Stage) bring to life Lewis’ classic book, which has sold millions of copies worldwide.
The story is set in Professor Screwtape’s study in the timeless dominion of Hell. The play follows Screwtape’s attempts to train his junior devils, including his protégé Wormwood, in the fine art of temptation. It remains faithful to the original text, characters and themes created by Lewis and holds three Edinburgh Fringe Sell-Out Show Awards.
Tickets now available from the Cedar Tree or HCC Office. £10 adult / 12–18s go free!
