The Screwtape Letters is a smart, provocative and wickedly funny theatrical adaptation of the C.S. Lewis novel about spiritual warfare from a demon's point of view.
The play, set in an eerily stylish office in hell, follows the clever scheming of Satan's chief psychiatrist, Screwtape, as he entices a human 'patient' toward damnation. In this topsy-turvy, morally inverted universe God is the Enemy and the Devil is Our Father below. The stakes are high as human souls are hell's primary source of food.
As His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, award-winning actor Brent Harris, creates a master-of-the-universe character who mesmerizes the audience as he allures his unsuspecting 'patient' down the soft, gentle path to hell. At his feet is Screwtape's able assistant, Toadpipe, (played by Marissa Molnar & Tamala Bakkensen) a grotesque creature demon, who transforms her elastic body into the paragons of vices and characters Screwtape requires to keep his patient away from the "Enemy."
Max McLean, who developed the role of Screwtape, will be on hand to give a 15-20 post-show talk with audience Q and A.
