C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert

Using C.S. Lewis’ own words, award-winning actor Max McLean brings the brilliant Oxford Don to life, taking us on his extraordinary journey from hard-boiled atheist to the most reluctant convert in all England . . . only to become the most influential Christian writer of the 20th century.



Run Time: 80 minutes with no intermission. The performance is followed by a post-show discussion with Max McLean.
