Shadowlands

Wed Green matinee 2.30pm*
Sat matinee 2.30pm

By William Nicholson

Shadowlands is the stunning drama written by William Nicholson that poses classic questions about religion, pain and love, through childhood innocence through the beautiful wonder of late-flowering love.This West End and Broadway hit is the love story of C.S. Lewis – Oxford don and author of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters – and American poet Joy Davidman.

Lewis is comfortable in his life at Oxford University, smug in his convictions about God and His plan for the world until his fan Joy and her young son enter his life and the bewildered theoretician of love in the abstract finally confronts its direct presence.

Following on from its original incarnation as a TV drama then subsequent stage adaptation and finally a film starring Anthony Hopkins, the play has gone on to win multiple awards as well as the film adaptation picking up multiple BAFTA and US awards.

Starring Stephen Boxer (Humans, The Iron Lady, Doctors) as C.S. Lewis, Amanda Ryan (The Forsyte Saga) and Dennis Lill (Only Fools and Horses and The Royal) this West End and Broadway hit is the love story of C.S. Lewis – Oxford don and author of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters – and American poet Joy Davidman.
