Silver Summit Theatre Presents SCREWTAPE

November 27, 2012

Silver Summit Theatre Company’s Screwtape is opening this Thursday and playing thru Sunday evening at the

Midvale Main Street Theatre

7711 S Main St (700 West)

Midvale, UT

Based on the book The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis and adapted for the stage by James Forsyth, Screwtape is an edgy, devilish dramatic contest with high-level meaning, thrashed out on stage with brilliant low-level comedy and wicked wit.

Wormwood has just completed his training and as a junior fiend, he is being critically supervised in this, his first case by none other than that extraordinary old devil, Screwtape. Woodworm is tasked with seizing the soul of a very human and very struggling young man, and although the advice he receives from Screwtape is devastatingly perceptive of human foibles and how to exploit them (and why not? after all the old hand from Hell has been at it for ages), the young fiend is determined to do things his own way.

Our troubled young man, despite the unexpected love of a wonderful young woman, is in terrible danger as Wormwood works tirelessly to lead him slowly on the path to Hell. What will happen when hell, heaven, religion, and humanity collide?
