The Lyndhurst Drama and Musical Society are presenting Shadowlands by William Nicolson and directed by Phil Rainforth. Shadowlands is an intensely personal and moving biographical drama concerning an intriguing episode in the life of CS Lewis. In 1952 Lewis met an American poet, Joy Gresham. Although on the face of it the two were very different individuals, they became close friends and later married each other, twice. The first time to help Mrs Gresham obtain British citizenship and the second when she became very ill with terminal cancer. The play follows their emotional journey and the impact it had on Lewis and those around him. Show dates are Thursday 31st October, Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd November—curtains up at 7.45pm.
