a play by William Nicholson

To love at all is to be vulnerable.

The unlikely true life love story between noted British Christian author C.S. (Jack) Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia) and American writer Joy Gresham, who happens to be both Jewish and divorced. Before Joy and her son unexpectedly drop into Jack’s life, he led a comfortable bachelor existence, teaching, writing, and lecturing at Oxford. Once Joy appears, things dramatically change. He is forced to approach everything, including his personal faith in God, from his heart, not his mind.

Two performances of Shadowlands will be ASL (American Sign Language) interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing:

  • Sunday 3/26
  • Friday 3/31
