Actor to Present “An Evening with CS Lewis”
British actor David Payne will perform An Evening with C.S. Lewis. This dramatic staged production is set in the year 1963, when famed British author C. S. Lewis was in the twilight of his life. Following a request from his great friend, J.R.R. Tolkien, Lewis agreed to give an informal talk to a group of American writers who were visiting England. They came to Lewis’ home, just outside of Oxford, to hear the man who had become a legend in his own lifetime. Despite his failing health, Lewis was in great form. His audience was spellbound as, with a display of oratory and humor that made him one of England’s most famous public speakers, he recounted the significant events and the people that shaped his life.
