Screwtape from Max McLean (Letter #12)

Here's a short excerpt from The Screwtape Letters as Max McLean interprets it. Quite a marvelous production. Our oldest son treated us to it when it was in Washington last year on the occasion of our 40th wedding anniversary. HERE's a column about it. Screwtape's secretary Toadpipe is played by Australian actress Elise Girardin as a mime, with no spoken lines but all the more eloquent for that as she illustrates with posture and posing the ideas Screwtape is projecting. This is a wonderful performance and you should see it if you get the chance.
