jan 23-31 | shadowlands | lloyd arnett

Note from Ron: Director Lloyd Arnett also staged SHADOWLANDS in 2005, at Trinity Western - a production that sparked me to schedule the play in our next season.  Dan Amos and Diana Squires starred in the Trinity show, and both have been on the PT stage since; Diana in GODSPELL and the recent IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE and Dan in a pile of shows including THIS WONDERFUL LIFE (the one-man show), THE QUARELL (opposite Nathan Schmidt, who opens UNDERNEATH THE LINTEL on Friday), and PT's own production of SHADOWLANDS.  Seems like a good idea is worth having again and again.

Gallery 7 presents: Shadowlands
January 23, 24, 29-31

The serene world of C.S. Lewis, Oxford professor, famous author and determined bachelor, is turned inside out when he is visited by the spirited poet, Joy Gresham. What starts as a cordial friendship transforms into an ardent romance. When Joy develops terminal cancer, C.S. Lewis is forced to re-think his stoic philosophy on pain and suffering and experiences love and compassion on an entirely new level. This heart-warming West-End and Broadway hit explores the power of love and how suffering and loss can both challenge and transform a person's character and resolve.
