A wonderful drama that invites us on an emotional journey filled with highs and lows, deeply felt and full of humour. It is also beautiful film with Anthony Hopkins, but the stage play is superior. I saw it with Charles Dance on the West End, and was reminded about how funny the play can be.
Sort of an unfortunate title, but otherwise, highly recommended.

A play with all the elements that engage an audience from the first page and make them think, laugh and cry.
Each character is clearly defined through their words and, as in a jigsaw, every word is important in allowing the audience to build a picture of Jack's world into which Joy arrives and changes.
The flow from scene to scene is superb.
There is even an essential hint of the magic of Narnia provided just for Douglas, or could it be more than magic?
The audience are with Jack all the way as he grapples his long-held religious beliefs.
Fabulous and will be my next direction.

Very well told on stage. Accurate and engaging. Interesting characters and a well-paced story line.
