The devil's due in Coral Springs

Screwtape If you're looking for something theatrical to do this weekend, one option is to watch as a sly devil explains precisely how to undermine the faith of a new convert to Christianity.

The Screwtape Letters, an adaptation of the epistolary novel by Chronicles of Narnia author C.S. Lewis' novel, is doing its entertaining, intellectually stimulating dirty work for three performances at Broward's Coral Springs Center for the Arts, 2855 Coral Springs Dr.  Actor Max McLean, who wrote the script with director Jeffrey Fiske, plays the exuberant senior devil, Screwtape.  From his comfortable office in Hell (where else?), he dictates his game plan to his secretary, Toadpipe (Karen Eleanor Wight),

Performances are at 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday.  Tickets are $29 to $49.  Call 954-344-5990 or visit the Coral Springs Center's web site for information.
