The Screwtape Letters is one of those theatrical productions that delivers just about everything that you are expecting from a great evening at the theatre. It is a thought-provoking, captivating and compelling show with a phenomenal production, direction and performance. The show revolves around the delightful words of the author C.S. Lewis who wrote the original book by the same name.
The play is encompassed around the notion of conflict from the standpoint of a demon. The first time this show was displayed on stage was in 2010 when it was showcased in New York. The total stage performances of the play were 309 at the popular Westside Theatre. The play garnered attention of the masses and in no time it became a widely successful play. Prior to appearing in New York, the play premiered in Chicago and ran for six months. After that, the production was featured in Washington, D.C., where it was a sold out event for literally ten consecutive weeks.
The story line of the Screwtape Letters is just what the title of this play suggests. There are a number of letters that are exchanged between a senior devil by the name of Screwtape and his young nephew named Wormwood who is a Junior Tempter who has only recently begun his devilish job. The letters are a way of Screwtape mentoring Wormwood on how to lure a mortal human being away from God. As God is not projected in a physical way on the stage, you get to hear a story of Wormwood being reflected in the letters that Screwtape writes to him where he mocks and heavily criticizes Wormwood and his childlike follies. As Screwtape is seen delivering all of these letters that he has written himself on the stage, it successfully puts the audience in the shoes of Wormwood in order for them to develop their own independent concepts of good and evil being changed as well as challenged.
The director who is also the playwright of this play, Jeffrey Fiske has undoubtedly done a phenomenal work of dramatizing and acclimatizing this theatrical show. During the play, Screwtape is seen delivering monologues regarding a few types of people that the mortal victim of Wormwood should and should not affiliate with. Although the images of these people are as correct as they were when they were written, Jeffery Fiske utilizes a silent henchman character named Toadpipe to perform these people physically on the stage. This utilization of a real-time character to depict what is imaginary in the book on which this play is based upon is a brilliant strategy. Toadpipe is played by Karen Eleanor who does an incredible job as Toadpipe. Every time she transforms into a new person, the audience has a laugh and it feels as though they know who that character is.
In the Screwtape Letters, the main character of Screwtape is performed by Max McLean who does a great job at portraying the compelling and charismatic character that is written about in the book. McLean does not seem once to be failing at presenting the entire scale of his character. He continuously changes between supreme wit and harsh cruelty, barbaric hatred as well as sophistication. The production has been created in a way that although the Screwtape is seen to be addressing the audience, yet it is Wormwood who is speaking to. This facet of the play makes it very intriguing.
This is one of those modern-day plays that you will surely enjoy. Apart from the brilliant performers and the direction of the show, the sets, lights and music are worth appreciating also.
