This widely acclaimed production returns to the fringe for four performances. Nigel Forde's 'sparkling script' and David Robinson's 'impressive Screwtape' (Stage) bring to life Lewis' classic book, which has sold millions of copies worldwide. Set in the study of Professor Screwtape, the devils set about diverting their subject away from being tempted to the other side, with a degree of subtlety and humour that they feel is bound to bring them the ultimate victory. The battle is fierce and the stakes are high, and the junior devils test the Professor to the limit. Devilishly good.
