St Anne’s Cathedral will play host to two literary greats this September as it welcomes a unique three person theatre production featuring David Payne and Marc Whitmore.
After the huge success of “An Evening with CS Lewis” which visited Belfast last year, this new production entitled “Wardrobes and Rings” will transport you back to Oxford in 1963, to the Eagle and Child pub, where legendary authors J.R.R Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis meet for what turns out to the very last time. With great humour, wit, and fascinating stories, these remarkable lives are explored in this memorable piece of theatre. (more…)
