“I should say that I much approve of merry-making,” wrote C.S. Lewis, the famous British theologian and author of The Chronicles of Narnia, in an essay titled “What Christmas Means to Me.” “But what I approve of much more is everybody minding his own business.” This one-man show starring David Payne imagines Lewis being the very opposite of reticent as he plays host to a group of American writers in his home near Oxford in 1962. With the masterly rhetoric and sparkling humor for which he was renowned, Lewis relates his views on the significance of Christmas as well as his own personal path from atheism to religion.
