Stage Version of C. S. Lewis' The Great Divorce Coming to Portland in March

The Fellowship for Performing Arts is bringing a stage version of C. S. Lewis' novel The Great Divorce to Portland in March.

The Great Divorce is about a busload of people given a free trip from Hell (portrayed as a grey, shoddy, pleasureless city) to the outskirts of Heaven and the choices they make about whether they want to stay or go back to Hell.

Are the choices we make every day in our lives controlling not only our current but our eternal destiny? When we see where selfishness, egotism, lust and self-righteousness lead will we be ready to give them up?

Performances will be Friday, March 13, 8 pm, and Saturday, March 14, 4 pm and 8 pm at the Newmark Theatre, 1111 S.W. Broadway. Tickets are available via links here or by calling 1-800-273-1530.

Fellowship for Performing Arts previously produced a stage play of Lewis' Screwtape Letters. It played in Portland in 2013.
