Barn Theatre Production Graphic


1st – 9th March 1996

This is the poignant story of the love that blossomed briefly between C.S. Lewis, repressed Oxford academic and children’s writer, and Joy Davidman, American poet and divorcée. They marry initially only to secure her British citizenship, but their friendship develops into a deep love which is cruelly heightened when Joy becomes terminally ill.

The subject is sombre, but Nicholson’s treatment of it is not only deeply moving but also witty, unsentimental and ultimately optimistic.

Part of the Barn’s 1995-1996 Season.
