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.

The Great Divorce
Limited engagement – back by popular demand!
Based on the novel by C.S. LEWIS
Adapted and Performed by ANTHONY LAWTON

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.
