Tony Lawton has adapted C.S. Lewis' novella, The Great Divorce, into an 80-minute, solo performance.
The play is the story of Clive, who, along with a motley crew of malcontents, takes a bus ride from hell to heaven. They are offered a chance to stay in heaven forever if they like, but the choice between joy and miserable loneliness proves to be much harder than they would have guessed. The piece is a feast of rich language, profound psychological insight, and humor.
Lawton performs the play solo, portraying more than a dozen characters. This is the simplest and most portable of the Mirror's offerings, which is probably why it is the cheapest and most popular! Lawton can perform the play with as little as one day's notice, in spaces as varied as a theatre, gymnasium, meeting room, or living room! All we require from you is a stool, about 3-4 feet high, preferably wood, with no backrest.
