The Screwtape Letters

Overview

The Screwtape Letters is an award-winning satirical comedy that celebrates it’s 25th anniversary this year. Nigel Forde's "sparkling script" and David Robinson's "impressive Screwtape" (The Stage) bring to life Lewis' classic book, which has sold millions of copies worldwide. 

The story is set in Professor Screwtape's study in the timeless dominion of Hell. The play follows Screwtape's attempts to train his junior devils, including his protégé Wormwood, in the fine art of temptation. It remains faithful to the original text, characters and themes created by Lewis and holds three Edinburgh Fringe Sell-Out Show Awards.
