Watch Virtual Presentation of ‘The Great Divorce’ Stage Play on November 15th

You may be stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go on an otherworldly bus ride with C.S. Lewis.

The Fellowship for Performing Arts, the Christian theatre company responsible for other popular C.S. Lewis stage productions such as The Screwtape Letters and C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert, will be offering free access to an online presentation of their newest adaptation: a stage play of C.S. Lewis’s 1945 novel The Great Divorce.

An innovative, intimate virtual presentation of the C.S. Lewis classic! Through the magic of green-screen technology, join four actors on a bus ride from hell to heaven. On arrival, they are invited to stay if they forego the flaws that damned them in the first place. The result is a theatrical clash that is poignant, humorous and deeply insightful about the human condition. 

The online event is at 4 PM, Eastern Standard Time, on November 15th. Registration is free. The play’s runtime is 100 minutes and it is recommended for ages 13 and up.

Can’t wait until Sunday to enjoy C.S. Lewis-inspired theatre in the comfort of your own home? C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert is also available to stream for free on RedeemTV. Check out NarniaWeb’s review of the one-man play here.

    I’d like to watch it but I’m not sure if I can count on being available at 4 PM on the 15th. I wish they’d have the video available to watch afterwards at least for a few days. 🙁

    An email sent out about the event said it will be available for streaming through Nov 18th. Not sure why they don’t say that on the main site.

  7. It’s called The Great Divorce in fact, I don’t know if it’s a musical or not.

  8. that’s because you’ve never seen it before.

  9. I really love Narnia so much since my childhood and you know why I added these pictures of those 4 men because some of you guys don’t know much about history well as I do.

  10. And last thing, C. S. Lewis should’ve wrote a novel about the 4 of them together years ago, In a fictional story like the way he written The Problem of Pain.
