C.S. Lewis' "Screwtape Letters" Hits the Boards in Portland, Oregon

I WILL be seeing this play Saturday.  And I will review it (in case anyone might want to do it in the future). I'm also announcing this PNW premiere in case you might wish to see it. It has a limited engagement (for this weekend only).

THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS is a smart, provocative and wickedly funny theatrical adaptation of the C.S. Lewis novel about spiritual warfare from a demon’s point of view.

It was a hit in NYC where it played 309 performances at the Westside Theatre in 2010. Prior to that it ran for six months in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune described THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS as the "most successful show in the history of Chicago's Mercury Theatre." It, also, had two engagements at The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C. where it played for ten sold-out weeks.

The national tour of THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS will play in over fifty major cities and performing arts venues throughout the United States.

The play, set in a eerily stylish office in hell, follows the clever scheming of Satan's chief psychiatrist, Screwtape, as he entices a human 'patient' toward damnation. In this topsy-turvy, morally inverted universe God is the “Enemy” and the Devil is “Our Father below.” The stakes are high as human souls are hell's primary source of food.
