The Screwtape Letters is an award-winning satirical comedy that is now touring for its 12th year. Nigel Forde's "sparkling script" and David Robinson's "impressive Screwtape" (The Stage) bring to life Lewis' classic book, which has sold millions of copies worldwide.


The story is set in Professor Screwtape's study, where Hell is an Oxbridge University. The play follows Screwtape's attempts to train his junior devils, including his protégé Wormwood, in the fine art of temptation. It remains faithful to the original text, characters and themes created by Lewis and holds three Edinburgh Fringe Sell-Out Show Awards.



"The performances are well honed, with Screwtape himself standing out as an embodiment of snide evil"
