For those of you who may be CS Lewis fans, I thought I’d let you know about a theatrical presentation of “The Screwtape Letters” that I read about in Christianity Today. An actor by the name of Max McLean has adapted and memorized the text to the story and is performing it in Chicago. I can only hope that he’ll bring it south so that I might be able to go see it. Click here for the website about the show and to see a preview video.
For those of you unfamiliar with Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, Screwtape is a experienced demon who is tasked with training a younger demon, Wormwood, in the ways of tempting mankind. The story and training unfold through a series of letters whereas Screwtape instructs the somewhat inept young Wormwood. It’s a fun read and should get your mind engaged as well.
The video preview of McLean’s theatre show didn’t really make me want to see the show, but I’d just have to go anyway out of sheer curiosity if it ever came nearby.
