About "The Screwtape Letters"
Now in its third smash year, the National Tour of "The Screwtape Letters" kicked off after a hit nine-month run at the Westside Theatre in New York City. The National Tour of "The Screwtape Letters" has delighted capacity audiences in over 50 major cities including Los Angeles, Boston and San Francisco since January 2011. Over 325,000 theatergoers have seen this production.
"The Screwtape Letters" creates a morally inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, where God is called the “Enemy” and the devil is referred to as “Our Father below.”
The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, and his slavish creature-demon Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon, Wormwood, on how to ruin the life and damn the soul of an unsuspecting human on earth.
