Thanks to the hugely successful stage play and movie Shadowlands, the story of C S Lewis and his wife Joy has become almost legendary. Lewis was in his mid fifties and was already a famous author, a tutor at Oxford University and a confirmed bachelor when he one day received a letter from an American woman.
Little did he realize that this letter would lead to a series of events that would turn his life upside down.
With a mixture of delightful humor, deep emotion and touching poignancy, Shadowlands – brilliantly written by British playwright William Nicholson – traces this wonderful story of true love and the triumph of the human spirit as it rises above the ordeal of terminal illness.
