The Great Divorce

Striking Theater with an Eternal Impact

Peer into another world, surrounded by the enchanting beauty of The Glen Eyrie Castle.

Revel at the storytelling and the artistry of Anthony Lawton’s nationally acclaimed performance of “The Great Divorce.”

Singlehandedly portraying more than a dozen characters, Lawton captivates the mind and heart, compelling us to consider the truths presented by C.S. Lewis. Step into a tale of wanderers who find themselves on a bus ride to the gates of Heaven but discover the choice between entering and enjoying a life of eternal joy or staying behind to live a life of miserable loneliness is harder than they expected… even though they are passionately beckoned.

Set in the grandeur of The Great Hall of The Glen Eyrie Castle, this nationally acclaimed performance will be unforgettable! Join us for an evening of entertainment, profound insight, and surprising humor.

This 75 minute performance will be in the Great Hall of The Castle and will include an unforgettable Q&A with Tony Lawton following the performance.

Anthony Lawton

Anthony Lawton has acted professionally since 1992. In 1998, he founded the Mirror Theatre Company. The company is committed to presenting drama about our spiritual life that will be of interest to all audiences, secular or religious. Lawton has performed in film, TV, Off-Broadway, regional theater and is also a teacher of the arts. His desire is that his plays would be part of an on-going dialogue with the audience where we discuss and consider that which is (or isn’t!) Eternal in us.

"The Great Divorce was one of the most powerful stage presentations I have ever seen. And that it was one man! Amazing. Can't wait until Tony comes back and I can bring more friends."
