From the award-winning audio drama team that brought you Radio Theatre’s Amazing Grace and The Chronicles of Narnia.
In his enduringly popular masterpiece The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis re-imagines Hell as a gruesome bureaucracy. With spiritual insight and wry wit, Lewis suggests that demons, laboring in a vast enterprise, have horribly recognizable human attributes: competition, greed, and totalitarian punishment. Avoiding their own painful torture as well as a desire to dominate are what drive demons to torment their “patients.”
The style and unique dark humor of The Screwtape Letters are retained in this full-cast dramatization, as is the original setting of London during World War II. The story is carried by the world-wise senior demon Screwtape (Andy Serkis, "Gollum" from The Lord of the Rings films) as he shares correspondence with his novice nephew—apprentice demon Wormwood—who's been tasked with securing the eternal damnation and everyday demise of his human "patient." All 31 letters lead into dramatic scenes, set in either Hell or the real world.
Featuring cinema-quality sound, original music score and over four hours of delightfully disturbing entertainment from the award-winning world of Radio Theatre, The Screwtape Letters will open your eyes and ears to the reality of the Devil's schemes—and the One who has overcome them.
This Radio Theatre release also stars Geoffrey Palmer (Tomorrow Never Dies), Laura Michelle Kelly (Sweeney Todd), Eileen Page (The Secret Garden), and other world-class actors.
