William Nicholson’s Tony nominated stage adaptation of his award-winning BBC Teleplay relates the story of shy Oxford don and children’s author C.S. Lewis and American poet Joy Gresham.
Shadowlands shows how love, and the risk of loss, transformed this great man’s relationships, even with God.
The story follows Lewis as he meets an American fan, Joy Gresham, whom he befriends and eventually marries.
The story also focuses on his relationship with his brother, Warren Lewis and deals with his personal struggle: Lewis preaches that one should endure suffering with patience, but finds that the simple answers he had preached no longer apply when Joy becomes afflicted with cancer and eventually dies.
