  C. S. Lewis
1898 - 1963

Will you marry this foolish, frightened old man... who
needs you more than he can bear to say... who loves you,
even though he hardly knows how?
Jack

We can't have the happiness of yesterday without the pain
of today. That's the deal.
Joy

Shadowlands tells the story of C.S.Lewis and Joy Gresham, their meeting, their marriage and the consequences of their finding love. It is set in Oxford University in the 1950s, where C.S.Lewis, the Christian thinker, academic, and writer of the “Narnia” stories for children, leads a settled and ordered life. Into this totally male world, Joy brings openness ,honesty and emotion, which forces Lewis to review his previous existence and its certainties. If wisdom is knowledge aligned with experience, then this powerful and passionate play shows how hard won this wisdom andexperience can be.

CHARITY COLLECTION

We decided to help the work done by the Macmillan Cancer Support by running a collection for them at our performances of 'Shadowlands'. Our audiences were very generous and a toal of £216 . 88 was raised.

 

The picture shows Ali (Douglas) and Mike (Jack Lewis) handing over the cheque to Kate Knight of Macmillan Cancer Support.

We were pleased to welcome Ruth to our group.

If you like acting, back-stage work, or just having fun then come along and join us, all are welcome.
