C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert
Following its hit 2018 national tour, Fellowship for Performing Arts — the producers of The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce — returns to Colorado Springs with
C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert. This one-day only show will take place Saturday, June 29 at 4 p.m. at Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts.
Award-winning actor Max McLean presents this highly-acclaimed theatrical portrayal of Lewis’ journey from atheism to faith. In The Most Reluctant Convert, adapted exclusively from Lewis’ writings, McLean inhabits Lewis from the death of his mother and his estranged relationship with his father to the experiences that led him from vigorous debunker to one of the most vibrant and influential Christian intellectuals of the 20th century. C.S. Lewis Onstage is a joyous evening of Lewis’ entertaining wit and exhilarating insight.
“We’re thrilled to bring our latest production back to Colorado Springs,” said McLean, who adapted and co-directed Convert. “C.S. Lewis wrote more than 30 books that have sold more than 200 million copies, making him arguably the most influential religious writer of the past century. In The Most Reluctant Convert, we visit the events that led to his conversion.”
