Tom Key Performance Packs Kallemeyn Theatre

Tom KeyActor Tom Key starred in a unique one-man play, “Screwtape in Person,” in the Marg Kallemeyn Theatre on Monday, October 7, as a part of Trinity’s WorldView Series. Key’s performance brought C.S. Lewis’s book, The Screwtape Letters, to life, giving audience members a look at humanity from the perspective of hell.

In covering Lewis’ work, Key used various dialects and mannerisms to portray the characters, bringing each to life for the audience whether or not they were familiar with the famous story. This was Key’s second performance at Trinity. As part of the 2010 WorldView Series, Key performed “C.S. Lewis on Stage.”
