Event Description

A Play in two Acts written by David Payne

When C S Lewis met the American writer Joy Gresham a meeting of the minds soon became a meeting of the heart. Here is a heartwarming story of two people from two different worlds who find themselves thrown together thanks to a mutual love of literature.  Both authors in their own right, they revel in debate and humor and their initial meetings are at times quite hilarious. Friendship, however, soon turns into love and a marriage filled with much joy not least because they were united in their Christian faith. That faith was to be severely tested when Joy was struck down with terminal cancer plunging both into a very uncertain future. Joy facing death itself and Lewis facing the prospect of life without the woman who had changed his life. You will laugh, you may shed tears as you see two people drawing on their faith both in the happiest and bleakest days of life.  

Actors: David Payne (C.S. Lewis), Molly Breen (Joy Gresham) and Gregory Williams Welsch (Warnie Lewis)
