Screwtape Letters on stage

Screwtape Letters on stage

Postby maddogprof » 08 Jun 2007, 15:36

I am looking for "The Screwtape Letters" stage adaptation by Nigel Forde. I have searched every script publishing company that I know of and have come up with nothing. Can any help? Thanks!

Neither Samuel French nor the Drama Book Shop in NYC have it, at least through their online searches. Therefore, it does not exist. :wink: You could get in touch with them and see if they can get hold of a copy for you:

Found the following information here:

Please note: we have been asked many times for copies of the script we used for this play. If you contact Riding Lights Theatre Company on or via, they can put you in touch with Nigel Forde, who adapted it. Do bear in mind that as well as requesting permission and paying royalties to Nigel, you will also need to ask permission and pay royalties to the CS Lewis Company, which handles the estate of CS Lewis. Unfortunately, we have no current contact details for them.

If Mr. Forde responds, he can probably give you the contact information for the appropriate person at C. S. Lewis Pte (the estate).
Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.
