The Screwtape Letters

Tuesday, 18 April 2017 to Saturday, 22 April 2017

“It is funny, the mortals always picture us as putting things into their minds. In reality, our best work is done by keeping things out...” - C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

"The whole production team is to be congratulated on a memorable and captivating show that has brought the brilliant wit and insights of C.S.Lewis to the stage and to even greater accessibility for a modern generation." 
- Philip Edwards, Theatre Press

C.S. Lewis’ masterpiece of dark comedy – The Screwtape Letters - returns to the stage this April. After a hugely successful 2016 season in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, Clock & Spiel Productions are bringing The Screwtape Letters to Adelaide (from April 18-22 2017) for 7 shows only.

One of the most popular works of C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia, The Space Trilogy), this brilliantly funny literary masterpiece – in a special new adaptation for the stage - provides a humorously accurate insight into the frailties of human nature.

Celebrating 75 years in print in 2017, The Screwtape Letters follows the correspondence between a senior demon, Screwtape, and his nephew, a junior tempter named Wormwood – whose task it is to secure the damnation of a young man known as “The Patient”.

Directed and adapted by Hailey McQueen, The Screwtape Letters is masterfully performed by Yannick Lawry (Australia: The Story of Us) as Screwtape, while George Zhao (The Family Law) injects a wonderful physical comedy to his role, in his portrayal of Screwtape’s assistant – Toadpipe.
