Virtual Production of “Shadowlands” Available for Streaming Feb 21-24
After the success of their virtual version of The Great Divorce, the Fellowship for Performing Arts is returning to streaming with a virtual production of William Nicholson’s Shadowlands. The event is free, but registration is required to receive a link to the performance.
The smart, brash Joy bursts into Lewis’ sedate, middle-aged life and upends it. Lewis is as shocked as anyone to discover he and Joy have fallen deeply in love – and almost immediately must contend with the equally deep pain of losing her when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Funny, poignant and insightful, Shadowlands — also an Oscar®-winning film — is a moving portrait of love and loss, faith and doubt, as inspired by Lewis’ own A Grief Observed.
The runtime of the play is 2 hours and 15 minutes. It is recommended for ages 13 and up.
