In his enduringly popular masterpiece, C.S. Lewis re-imagines Hell as a gruesome bureaucracy. With spiritual insight and wry wit, Radio Theatre’s The Screwtape Letters centers on the senior demon Screwtape (Andy Serkis) as he shares correspondence with his apprentice Wormwood. The younger spirit’s assignment is terrorizing a man in London during the tumultuous days of World War II.
Andy Serkis (an atheist) has an amazing voice — he played Gollum in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, among many other theatrical productions. Serkis is currently working with Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg on the Tintin feature film scheduled for release in 2011 and preparing for two upcoming movies based on The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.
