The Screwtape Letters, the provocative and wickedly funny theatrical adaptation of the C.S. Lewis novel about spiritual warfare from a demon's point of view, will be presented in a limited engagement in Columbus this spring.
The Screwtape Letters runs 90 minutes without intermission. In this topsy turvy morally inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, God is called the "Enemy" and the devil is referred to as "Our Father below."
The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, Satan's top psychiatrist, played by award winning actor Max McLean, and his creature-demon secretary Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon, Wormwood, on the fine art of seducing an unsuspecting human "patient" down the "soft, gentle path to hell."
