Written by William Nicholson, this Broadway hit is based on the poignant true love story of C.S. “Jack” Lewis, an Oxford professor and author of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters, and Joy Gresham, an American intellectual, writer, and poet.

Jack has developed a comfortable life for himself teaching attentive students, speaking to adoring audiences, and even writing a series of children's books whose many readers send him letters telling him how magical the stories are.
Then one day, Jack meets face to face with one of his more strident fans, Joy, who steams into his life leaving behind an abusive husband and towing in her wake a wounded, quiet son whose one enthusiasm appears to be Jack's "magical" stories.

This moving romantic drama poses elemental questions about God and love, life and loss, pain and suffering — leaving the audience touched, moved, and ultimately inspired.

C.S. Lewis: "I never knew what I was supposed to say. What do you say when your mother is dying?"
Joy: "There's nothing like dying to make you realize you're not in charge."
C.S. Lewis: "Yes there is. Loving someone does that too."
