Due to popular demand, Fellowship for Performing Arts, the producers of Further Up & Further In, have added two additional performances of the world premiere of the new theatrical experience starring Max McLean, featuring the wit and wisdom of C.S. Lewis. Added performances include Tuesday, October 18th and Wednesday October 19th, tickets are available for purchase here.

After three years of development, C.S. Lewis On Stage: Further Up & Further In is currently running at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Dr., Richardson, TX 75082-4332 through Oct. 23, 2022.

“When Lewis moved from vigorous debunker to believer, it wasn’t obvious he would become the most influential Christian writer of the past hundred years,” said actor and playwright Max McLean. “Why did the BBC give Lewis a national audience to deliver unprecedently popular radio talks that would become Mere Christianity? How did Hitler’s devious charm influence the writing of The Screwtape Letters? What made Lewis such an effective apologist/evangelist to skeptics? Was it prayer? His expectation of the second coming? Or was it his deep longing for Heaven that also inspired much of his writing including Narnia and The Great Divorce?”

Using Lewis’ own words, Further Up & Further In explores these questions and more through a dazzling, state-of-the-art theatrical experience of startling imagery, evocative music and Lewis’ amazing storytelling. Further Up & Further In is a standalone production that builds on the story of Lewis’ conversion as a young man told in the nationwide hit play C.S. Lewis On Stage: The Most Reluctant Convert.

The award-winning creative team is led by Kelly Tighe, set design (National Tour, Cats), John Gromada’s original score (Broadway, Tony Nomination, The Trip to Bountiful), Harry Feiner’s visual imagery (Off Broadway, Paradise Lost) and Geoffrey Fishburn’s lighting (Off Broadway, Martin Luther on Trial), all under the direction of Ken Denison (The Lion King, associate producer).

Founded by Artistic Director Max McLean, Fellowship for Performing Arts is a New York City-based production company whose mission is to produce theatre and film from a Christian worldview to engage a diverse audience. In addition to annual seasons at Theatre Row in New York City, it produces coast-to-coast tours in both major performing arts venues and university theatres. McLean is the 2022 recipient of the C.S. Lewis Foundation Award for Distinguished Lifetime Contributions in Faith and Dramatic Arts.

FPA also produced the hit film The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis, which is available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play and YouTube, as well as to purchase on DVD and Blu-ray.
