The Unlikely, True Love Story of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman

The smart, brash Joy bursts into Lewis’ sedate, middle-aged life and upends it. Lewis is as shocked as anyone to discover that he and Joy have fallen deeply in love – and then almost immediately he must contend with the equally deep pain of losing her when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Funny, poignant and insightful, Shadowlands — also an Oscar®-winning film — is a moving portrait of love and loss, faith and doubt, as inspired by Lewis’ own A Grief Observed.

  • “Mr. Gerroll and Ms. Abramson are APPEALING COMIC ACTORS, smartly restrained and surrounded by a STRONG COMPANY!”


    “IT DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER than Gerroll as C.S. Lewis…THE EXCELLENT ROBIN ABRAMSON is well-matched.”


    “Of the 10 plays I saw last week, Shadowlands was BY FAR THE BEST.”

  • “A THOUGHTFUL AND SATISFYING REVIVAL…Under Christa Scott-Reed’s direction, the EXCEPTIONAL CAST catches every nuance of this fine play.”

    The New Yorker

    “BEAUTIFULLY ACTED by Gerroll and Abramson and directed with quiet sympathy by Christa Scott-Reed, the production has the effect of a prayer delivered tenderly and even humorously.”

    Huffington Post

    “SHADOWLANDS blends the lightness and humor of a good romantic comedy with just enough theological depth to ENGAGE THE INTELLECT.”

    National Review

  • “FPA is like a breath of fresh air… Shadowlands deals with the mystery of human suffering…I can imagine many enthusiastic discussions that the play might provoke.”
