New play about the friendship between Tolkien and Lewis

Postby inklingyvr » Mon Jun 30, 2014 12:49 pm

There is a play in the works about the friendship between JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis!

Full disclosure: I am helping out with the current fundraising campaign for the play through this Indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the- ... /x/1857802.

Apologies if this isn't the right place to share, I just figure it might be of interest! The play should be going up in Vancouver, BC in 2015-16, right now it's in the research and development phase. Playwright Ron Reed has created a spreadsheet detailing every known event in Lewis and Tolkien's lives from before they met until Lewis' death!

Whether or not you're interested in supporting the campaign, there is a lot of info about the project on the indiegogo, and you can connect with the playwright throughout the writing process on Facebook: www.facebook/com/ronreedplaywright.

Supported as well.
Looks interesting.

I strongly suggest you to post about this in the Tolkien Society facebook group - it currently has a membership of 12,000. Much of the fund and support could be raised there. (though I should warn, a few members are quite snobby about such projects)
