FELLOWSHIP FOR PERFORMING ARTS' SMASH HIT PRODUCTION OF
C.S. LEWIS'
"The Screwtape Letters"

RETURNS TO ATLANTA

At Ferst Center-Georgia Tech
June 8-9

'The Devil Has Rarely been given His Due More Eruditely'
The New York Times


'Pure Genius' - National Review

  The Screwtape Letters, the provocative and wickedly funny theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis' novel about spiritual warfare from a demon's point of view, returns to Atlanta for three performances only at the Ferst Center at Georgia Tech, June 8-9.

  Brent Harris returns to the role of Screwtape, which he has performed to sold-out audiences in New York City and across the U.S.

  The Screwtape Letters continues its 2019 national tour after a hit run in New York. The production has been seen by more than 500,000 people across the country and in London. Additional 2019 tour cities include Nashville, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Houston, Tulsa and Kansas City.

  The New York Times called The Screwtape Letters, "Clever and Satirical ... Humorous and Lively." The New Yorker found it a "Fine, Funny, Thoughtful Production." The Associated Press said it is "Devilishly funny!" The Boston Globe called it, "Engrossing and Entertaining!" and The Chicago Tribune said The Screwtape Letters is "Very smart...richly rewarding...with exuberant theatricality!"

  The Screwtape Letters creates a topsy-turvy, morally-inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, where God is the "Enemy" and the devil is "Our Father below." The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, Satan's senior tempter, and his slavish creature-demon Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon on how to ruin the life and damn the soul of an unsuspecting human on earth.

  Along with The Chronicles of Narnia (including The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe), The Great Divorce and Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters remains one of Lewis' most popular and influential works.

  The book's piercing insight into human nature and the lucid and humorous way Lewis makes his readers squirm in self-recognition made it an immediate success.

  When first published in 1942, it brought worldwide fame to the Oxford don, including the cover of Time Magazine. The idea for Screwtape came to Lewis after listening to Adolph Hitler's Reichstag speech on July 19, 1940, while it was simultaneously translated on BBC Radio. Lewis wrote, "I don't know if I'm weaker than other people, but it is a positive revelation to me how while the speech lasts it is impossible not to waver just a little ...   Statements which I know to be untrue all but convince me ... if only the man says them unflinchingly."

  Lewis dedicated the book to his close friend J.R.R. Tolkien who had expressed to Lewis that delving too deeply into the craft of evil would have consequences. Lewis admitted as much when he wrote, "Though I had never written anything more easily, I never wrote with less enjoyment ... though it was easy to twist one's mind into the diabolical attitude, it was not fun, or not for long. The work into which I had to project myself while I spoke through Screwtape was all dust, grit, thirst and itch. Every trace of beauty, freshness and geniality had to be excluded."

C.S. Lewis
"Mere Christianity"



Arguably the 20th century's most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics. Paperback with French f laps and deckled page edges.

 

Thomas Williams
"Knowing Aslan" E-Book



Do your friends and neighbors have only a vague idea of Lewis's Christian metaphors either before or after viewing the film version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe? This quick, easy-to-read, and non-threatening overview can help! Using biblical parallels and priced for giving, it's ideal as an evangelism tool for both churches and individuals. 64 pages, softcover from Nelson.

C.S. Lewis
"The Screwtape Letters"



Wormwood, a demon apprentice, must secure the damnation of a young man who's just become a Christian. He seeks the advice of an experienced devil, his uncle Screwtape. Their correspondence offers invaluable---and often humorous---insights on temptation, pride, and the ultimate victory of faith over evil forces. 
Paperback with French flaps and deckled page edges.

C.S. Lewis
"The Chronicles 
Of Narnia"



Kids love the enchanting tales of Narnia, but adults are better able to appreciate the deeper meaning of Lewis's classic fantasies. This grown-up edition includes all seven chronicles in one volume, plus Lewis's essay "On Three Ways of Writing for Children." Sure to become a treasured addition to your library. 784 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.

C.S. Lewis
"The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe"



The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe introduced readers to the wonders and enchantment of Narnia when it was first published almost fifty years ago. Since then the hearts and imaginations of millions of readers have been captured by the story of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, who step through a magic wardrobe into Narnia, once the peaceful land of Talking Beasts, Dwarfs, Giants, and Fauns, but now frozen into winter by the evil White Witch. Now, in this special gift-book edition of C.S. Lewis's timeless classic, the orignal illustrator of The Chronicles of Narnia, Pauline Baynes, has created beautiful new full-color plates for each chapter. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy; Mr. and Mrs. Beaver; Mr. Tumnus, the Faun; the White Witch; and, of course, Aslan the Great Lion, guardian of Narnia -- all spring vividly to life in these richly detailed paintings. This glorious, finely wrought book makes the perfect introduction to all the wonders of Narnia and will be a keepsake to treasure forever.
