The Great Divorce

Nov 19, 2018

The Great Divorce is an allegory on heaven and hell by C. S. Lewis of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and Screwtape Letters fame. Ghostly characters travel on magic bus from their dismal grey town (which may be Hell or Purgatory) to a shining landscape on the outskirts of Heaven. There they meet joyful figures who invite them to abandon the attitudes and behaviours that keep them trapped.

Aaron Krogman (who directed Tartuffe in Fall 2017) directs students in King’s Ensemble Production courses. Students in Stagecraft were the production crew, led by production designer Daniel vanHeyst.
