From the show:

The first production of the season features an updated revival of C.S. Lewis's "The Great Divorce," a mesmerizing fantasy about heaven and hell that the *New York Times* describes as “infinitely thought-provoking” and “consistently intriguing.” Now with new, added material, four actors portraying 22 distinct characters take a strange bus trip from hell to the outskirts of heaven where they are given an opportunity to stay or return to hell. The choice proves to be much harder than imagined. The play runs from Dec. 12-29 followed by an extensive national tour.
