CS Lewis On Stage: Further Up and Further In

November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm5:00 pm EST

C.S. Lewis profoundly impacted the modern world, and The Most Reluctant Convert’s Max McLean will bring his persona to life at Charlotte’s Blumenthal Center in November!

Join fellow Gordon-Conwell alumni, faculty, and friends to see a live performance of C.S. Lewis Onstage: Further Up and Further In, followed by star Max McLean’s brief address to Gordon-Conwell guests, as well as a lively discussion featuring C.S. Lewis expert Timothy Willard, who is writing a book on Lewis for Oxford University Press. The discussion will also feature Bruce Long, Executive Director of Christians in Theatre Arts and producer of the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis, among other plays performed at the Blumenthal.

This promises to be a great opportunity to connect with fellow alumni and friends, while at the same time treating yourself and your family (children 16 & up only) to an evening out, exploring the intersection of Christianity and cultural arts.
