From the producers of the stage hit, "The Screwtape Letters" comes the highly anticipated theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ "The Great Divorce."

In this dantesque celestial journey from Hell to Paradise, Lewis draws some of the most fiercely funny characters he ever created.

This is C. S. Lewis at his imaginative best! Several of Lewis’ most provocative characters take a bus ride from Hell to Paradise.

But the bizarre question the play asks is: Will they like it? Do some people really prefer Hell to Heaven? Are the gates of Hell locked from the inside?

Three actors transform into over a dozen characters to tell this fantastical morality tale about good and evil. On the bus is a man going to demand his “rights”, a woman who can’t stop grumbling, a gentleman who “likes” Heaven but staying there means giving up his precious pet lizard, and a world traveler who believes Heaven and Hell are just a propaganda stunt run by the same people. As each ghost is welcomed by a celestial spirit, the choice of staying or going back brings vivid clarity to the “great divorce” between Heaven and Hell.
