An Evening with C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis
Share by Email
Time: Times Vary
Date: Saturday February 1, 2020
Location: Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center
Address: 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS, 67202
Price: $50
Category: Theatre / Dance
Starring David Payne

The year is 1962 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.

Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.

Described by critics as ‘Extraordinary!’ ‘A Must See!’ ‘A Master Class!’ An Evening with C.S. Lewis has proved again and again to be an enthralling theatrical experience and one which has led many thousands to discover (or rediscover) the continuing impact of a man who died over 50 years ago and whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of the 20th Century.

Dates and Times:
Saturday, February 1, 2020
4:00pm and 8:00pm

Location:
Century II Mary Jane Teall Theater
