Chautauqua Playhouse: Oldest Community Theatre Trying to Stay Young


Presented by

FreeFall Stage


Based on one of C.S. Lewis’s most well-known novels, James Forsythe’s Screwtape is about a mid-level satanic bureaucrat, Screwtape, who is training a young demon, Wormwood, to lure his first soul, Mike Green (aka “The Patient”), into their “Father Below’s” pit. Mike has very recently become acquainted with Christianity, but is still ignorant of its meaning and authority, a fact which Wormwood and Screwtape take advantage of as they attempt to get him back to his old ways of life. The demons seek to trip Mike up by way of his overprotective mother, a new boss, a demon possessed co-worker, as well as a new love interest, who comes with her own temptress. All sorts of Hell breaks loose as the demons do anything and everything to pop their patient into the pit.
