BY C.S. LEWIS
C.S. Lewis's classic masterpiece, was adapted for the stage by Hailey and saw its first professional performance in Sydney in October 2015. Two extra performances were added to the season due to unprecedented demand.
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. Screwtape has been in the tempting business a long time, and he'll be damned (well, he IS damned) if his nephew stuffs up his career by letting The Patient turn to good rather than evil. Dedicated to Lewis' friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation, and triumph over it, ever written. One of his most popular and celebrated works we're privileged to be the only professional company to perform it in Australia.

"An affirming welcome surprise of a production, boutique and nuanced in its delivery, thoroughly charming in its concept, The Screwtape Letters is a must... Polished and precise, The Screwtape Letters is unlike anything Sydney has had to offer this past year."
