C.S. Lewis on the Web – Sept. 19th, 2012

Here are this week’s appearances of C.S. Lewis and his works across the web



David Payne’s “An Evening with C.S. Lewis” will be traversing the States. An Evening With C.S. Lewis is a captivating one man show that brings the author of the Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis, to life on the stage. Find the states and dates where you can attend here.

Find dates and tickets for Freud’s Last Session at the Mercury Theater in Chicago here. Freud’s Last Session centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud, who invites a young, little-known professor, C.S. Lewis, to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, love, sex and the meaning of life – only two weeks before Freud chooses to take his own.
