What is currently on at Novello Theatre (V416)


Set in Oxford, in the 1950s, Shadowlands is a witty, erudite and moving play about the unlikely but true romance between reserved British academic, author and theologian C.S Lewis and outspoken, divorced American poet Joy Gresham. When they met, Lewis - an Oxford don in his fifties living quietly and contentedly with his brother, Warnie - could not have anticipated how their lives would become entwined. Their marriage of convenience, undertaken to avoid Gresham's deportation, soon grew into a much more profound and significant connection.
Author William Nicholson
