Screwtape Rises Again from the Pit

New audio drama brings CS Lewis’ classic book to life with a vibrant new edge. On sale through Circle Press.

Andy Serkis does Screwtape
Acclaimed voice talent Andy Serkis interprets Screwtape with extraordinary skill.

November 17, 2009. What happens when the voice talent who portrayed Gollum in The Lord of the Rings takes on the voice of a senior demon in a full-cast audio dramatization of CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters?

Find out by watching this video, which is posted in the Catholic Spiritual Direction blog.

Long considered a spiritual classic, CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters presents a series of instructional letters from a senior demon to his nephew, who is learning the art of temptation “in the field” with a young human. Screwtape’s protegé, named Wormwood, is responsible for one thing: to drag his victim down to hell by hook or by crook.

The story itself is fascinating, full of brilliant insights into human nature and the psychology of temptation. It is also full of rich characterization, with Screwtape’s personality emerging in every letter, by turns wickedly clever, darkly jaded, and keenly manipulative of human weaknesses.

Never before has this drama been brought to life with such stunning audio effect. Thanks to Radio Theatre’s cinema-quality sound and a full-cast dramatization starring the voice talent of Andy Serkis as Screwtape, Bertie Carvel as Wormwood, Geoffrey Palmer as CS Lewis, Philip Bird, Roger Hammond, and Laura Michelle Kelly, the
