The Great Divorce
A mesmerizing theatrical adaptation of the C.S. Lewis fantasy classic.
Based on C.S. Lewis’ classic theological fantasy about Heaven and Hell, C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce takes you to the outskirts of Heaven where the decision to stay or return to the familiar “Grey Town” below proves to be harder than imagined. Now making its New York debut, three brilliant actors bring this mesmerizing adaptation to life in an exciting theatrical experience.
Run time: 90 minutes; no intermission.
What the Critics are Saying
“Infinitely thought-provoking . . . strong performances. . . grand projections . . . consistently intriguing.”
THE NEW YORK TIMES
“RECOMMENDED…A CHRISTIAN FANTASY WITHOUT THE SERMONIZING…a tidy, brightly designed show. Bit by bit, Lewis’ argument comes into sharp relief in a show that is BLESSEDLY FREE OF FINGER-WAGGING.”
THE WASHINGTON POST
“In this Dantean celestial journey from Hell to Paradise, Lewis draws some of the most FIERCELY FUNNY CHARACTERS he ever created. This is C.S. LEWIS AT HIS IMAGINATIVE BEST.”
DALLAS MORNING NEWS
“A rare and welcomed treat…that will DELIGHT, CHALLENGE, AND ENTERTAIN ALL from the average theatre-goer looking for a good show to the most devout of philosophers and theologians.”
“Highly provocative and theatrical.”
New York Theatre Scene
“RECOMMENDED. The text is FUNNY and PROVOCATIVE, the PERFORMANCES ARE FIRST-RATE, and the technical work is spot-on.”
D.C. THEATRE SCENE
“A ‘provocative’ exploration of human nature that features STRONG, VIVID CHARACTERS…from three VASTLY TALENTED ACTORS.”
“Lewis’ meditation on the juxtaposition of good and evil, grace and judgment—and his pondering whether the gates of hell are locked from the inside—is as CAPTIVATING as the original work…a thought provoking treat…LEWIS’ TRADEMARK WIT IS EVIDENT THROUGHOUT.”
