FPA Theatre presents C.S. Lewis’ classic theological fantasy; some of Lewis' most provocative and fiercely funny characters take a day trip from Hell to Paradise—a trip that leaves no one unchanged. More…
The story takes you to the outskirts of Heaven where the decision to stay or return to the familiar 'Grey Town' below proves to be harder than imagined. Over a dozen witty characters tell this fantastical morality tale about human choices. On the bus is a man who is going to Heaven to demand his 'rights', a woman who can't stop grumbling, a gentleman who 'likes' Heaven but staying there means giving up his precious pet lizard, and a carpetbagger who has seen it all and believes Heaven and Hell are just a propaganda stunt run by the same people. As each ghost is welcomed by a celestial spirit, the choice of staying or going back brings vivid clarity to the 'great divorce' between Heaven and Hell.
