C.S. "Jack" Lewis: accomplished author, famed creator of fantasy worlds, and the 20th Century's most eloquent defender of Christianity. Little do most people know that he was once an entrenched atheist. This play by Kennedy Center award-winning playwright Mahonri Stewart recounts the powerful spiritual journey of the "most reluctant convert in all of England," as he grapples with bold figures of faith like J.R.R. Tolkien and a god who hunts his soul relentlessly. Yet the worth of that soul is manifest in a struggle that will create a legendary legacy.
