Seasonal Special Happenings

Straight From Hell

When: Sun., April 19 2015

A stark contrast to Lewis’ previous works like The Chronicles of Narnia, the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis creates a topsy-turvy morally inverted universe set in a stylish office in hell. The story centers on a series of letters sent by a senior demon named Screwtape to his nephew, a younger less experienced demon, Wormwood. Wormwood needs his uncle’s help to secure the damnation of a British man who’s only referred to as “the Patient.” During their correspondence, Screwtape gives Wormwood advice on how to promote sin and undermine faith in God. The role of Screwtape is played by Brent Harris, who previously starred in The Lion King on broadway as Scar. See the theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ novel today at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Ohio Theater. Tickets are $40 to $75. (Siegel)
