Fans of C.S. Lewis Enjoy the One-Man Play at WorldView
Wednesday, 13 October 2010
Admirers of author C.S. Lewis, best known for his series The Chronicles of Narnia, filled the Marg Kallemeyn Theatre on October 4 to enjoy “C.S. Lewis On Stage,” the first event in the annual WorldView series.
In choosing what material to use in portraying the author on stage, actor Tom Key used Lewis’s autobiography Surprised by Joy as a guideline in producing this one-man play. Key’s play included excerpts from Lewis’s Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce, short stories, and poetry.
Tom Key is the producing artistic director of Theatrical Outfit, Atlanta’s fastest growing professional theatre company. “C.S. Lewis on Stage” captures the personality and fiction of this well-loved author.
Week two of the series welcomed Clarence Page on October 11. The final two WorldView events will feature filmmaker and human rights activist Barbara Martinez Jitner on October 18 and Michael Card in concert on October 25, at 7 p.m. in the Ozinga Chapel. WorldView events are free and open to the public.
