Fellowship for the Performing Arts presents the first New York revival of this drama which follows true love story of Oxford scholar and Christian apologist C.S. Lewis and the much younger Joy Davidman.
A Jewish-American writer, former Communist and Christian convert, the smart, brash Joy bursts into Lewis’ sedate, middle-aged life and upends it. Lewis is as shocked as anyone to discover that he and Joy have fallen deeply in love – and then almost immediately he must contend with the equally deep pain of losing her when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Full of humor and keen insight, the play is a moving portrait of love and loss, faith and doubt, as inspired by Lewis’ own biography, 'A Grief Observed.'
