Shadowlands tells the tender and tragic love story of C.S.Lewis, the author of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

This touching love story follows C.S. Lewis living as distinguished academic bachelor in Oxford. Life is comfortable and certain. But then the unexpected happens – he falls in love.

What begins as a formal meeting with American poet Joy Davidman, slowly develops into love.

Each provides the other with new ways of viewing the world, and their beliefs and faith are tested when they receive some heart-breaking news.

The cast is led by Stephen Boxer (Humans, The Iron Lady) as C.S. Lewis, Amanda Ryan (The Forsyte Saga) and Denis Lill (The Royal).

Shadowlands is on at the Cambridge Arts Theatre from May 23-28. For tickets call 01223 503333 or visit www.cambridgeartstheatre.com.
