The Brown University C.S. Lewis Inklings Society is excited to work with the Fellowship of Performing Arts to bring “The Most Reluctant Convert” to Brown University’s Campus. Reserve tickets here.
Using C.S. Lewis’ own words, award-winning actor Max McLean brings the brilliant Oxford Don to life, taking us on his extraordinary journey from hard-boiled atheist to “the most reluctant convert in all England”…only to become the most influential Christian writer of the 20th century. Here is a link to a trailer, with some audience reactions thrown in!
The play will take place on September 28 at 8pm in Salomon 101. Tickets are free, and details on how to register and when to pick them up can be found at FPAtheatre.com/Brown
From the official website of C.S. Lewis:
Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.
Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. C. S. Lewis’s most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics in The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.
