Tom Key wrote the one-man show and has performed it at Oxford University by invitation of C.S. Lewis' stepson, Douglas Gresham. "This reworked production incorporates new material I learned while I was at Oxford University, walking Addison's Way at Magdalen College. This is the same path that C.S. Lewis took with his friend J.R.R. Tolkien when he was moved to become a theist after years of atheistic philosophy," he says.
C.S. Lewis On Stage written by and starring Tom Key, presented by Theatrical Outfit, will play at The Balzer Theater at Herren's, located at 84 Luckie Street in Atlanta, Ga., June 7-10, 2012.
