The Screwtape Letters With Anthony Lawton
Join us for a performance of the Screwtape Letters on Friday, March 23rd or Saturday, March 24th at 6 - 8 pm!
Anthony Lawton has adapted C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters into a 90-minute, two-person play. The show features Screwtape, an undersecretary in Hell's sprawling bureaucracy. He dictates letters to his demon nephew, Wormwood, who has been assigned the task of tempting a single, earthly soul to damnation. Screwtape offers diabolical advice on the best ways to lead a mortal into self-delusion, surrender, pettiness, vice, and despair. The language crackles with satirical wit and penetrating insight on the psychology of human failure and unhappiness. Punctuating the play are dances between each letter, in styles as varied as tap, Latin ballroom, jazz, martial arts, and rock, and which feature extras like bullwhips and fire-eating. Screwtape performs these dances with his sinuous secretary, Toadpipe.
This professional performance is free to the public! 371 E Labonte St., Dillon, Colorado
