New Stage Production of The Shadowlands Premieres October 17

Shadowlands by William Nicholson. The love story of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman

Fellowship for the Performing Arts is currently developing a revival of William Nicholson’s award winning play about the love, life, and loss C.S. Lewis experienced in his relationship with Joy Davidman. This will be the first ever revival of this play which was also the inspiration for a 1993 movie staring Anthony Hopkins. Fellowship for the Performing Arts has produced excellent stage adaptations of C.S. Lewis books The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce and is currently touring C.S. Lewis Onstage The Most Reluctant Convert coming to Dallas September  27 – October 8.

This gripping story of how C.S. Lewis dealt with love and pain is a core moment in his life and this play is based on C.S. Lewis’s book A Grief Observed. The show is being directed by Broadway veteran Christa Scott-Reed whose goal is that, “Absolutely everyone, regardless of faith background or belief, will find something that resonates deeply for them in this show.” The new show premieres October 17 and is scheduled to run until January 7, 2018 in New York City.

    The stage play is great. The version I saw in Australia (starring Max Phipps and Jacki Weaver – apologies to non-Aussies to whom those names probably mean nothing) was in my view better than the film. Partly because Anthony Hopkins, though a superb actor, just isn’t believable as CS Lewis, and partly because it’s so much easier to use the medium of the stage to portray what’s going on inside CS Lewis’ mind. I’d strongly recommend seeing this. was created by:
