Now, The Screwtape Letters is one of CS Lewis’ most popular works. It’s based around the interchange of letters from a Senior Devil to a Junior Devil.
The Screwtape Letters follows correspondence between a senior demon, Screwtape, and his nephew – a “junior temptor” called Wormwood. Wormwood is charged with guiding a man called “the patient” away from God and towards the Devil, and Screwtape’s letters school Wormwood in the devil’s tempting ways.
The play follows the story of the “patient”, though the character is never seen on stage. All the action takes place in the demon Screwtape’s office, where Screwtape writes his letters to Wormwood with his scribe, Toadpipe.
The two people behind it are producer HAILEY MCQUEEN and actor YANNICK LAWRY.
