First Ever Full-Cast Dramatization of the Diabolical Classic, 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 senior demon Screwtape played magnificently by award-winning actor Andy Serkis (“Gollum” in Lord of the Rings) as he shares correspondence to his apprentice demon Wormwood. All 31 letters lead into dramatic scenes, set in either Hell or the real world with humans—aka “the patient,” as the demons say—along with his circle of friends and family. 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.
Includes 10 new songs inspired by the classic book, four behind-the-scenes video documentary featurettes, and a 5.1 surround sound mix.
The DVD contains the 5.1 Surround Sound version.
Total running time is approx 4 hours.
The Screwtape Letters: Audio Book by Focus on the Family was published by Tyndale House Publishers in November 2009 and is our 13642nd best seller. The ISBN for The Screwtape Letters: Audio Book is 9781589973244.
Four CDs plus a bonus DVD with behind the scenes video featurettes and surround sound mix of the entire programme.
The dramatization works superbly, mainly due to the voice of Andy Serkis (Gollum of Lord of the Rings) as the senior devil. The other actors supporting his performance make the whole an exciting experience for those new to the book and for those who have read it time and time again. Faithfully following C.S.Lewis’ words, but with the other characters given voices and words too, I have nothing but admiration for this production. Geoffrey Palmer as C.S.Lewis is just right and Douglas Gresham’s contribution sheds light on ‘Jack’ and his work. I could have done without the songs on the fourth CD, but no doubt others will like them.
Is the included DVD in region 1 (American) or region 2 (UK) format?
The DVD is region 0 and will play on DVD players with this coding.
