What Is the Story of The Screwtape Letters?
This theatrical adaptation of C. S. Lewis’ celebrated World War II-era novel features a demon named Screwtape who corresponds from his office in hell with an unseen disciple-in-training, offering advice on how to lead people on earth to the dark side. Assisted by his personal secretary (a creature named Toadpipe), Screwtape explains how various temptations can turn people away from The Enemy (God) and toward Our Father Below (the Devil). “We have never had souls in such abundance,” he chillingly declares.
