The Great Divorce has been performed at various events since 2006. I’ve not had the opportunity to see it yet, as I would have to travel a great deal from Michigan in order to see it. But for those who can get to a performance in Philadelphia, I have heard that it comes highly recommended by Lewis fans around the world.

Lewis’ own favorite among his works, The Great Divorce is the story of Clive, a hapless professor, and the motley band of malcontents who join him on a very curious bus ride. Journeying between Hell and Heaven, Clive crosses a surprising, wildly inventive landscape drawn by Lewis’ philosophical imagination. Satirical and comic, The Great Divorce is a wondrous ride filled with dazzling insight and language.
