This play is the poignant, humorous, unsentimental and ultimately optimistic, story of C.S. Lewis and the American poet Joy Davidman.

Set in the male enclave of academic Oxford in the 1950ís when their relationship starts as an exchange of literary correspondence. Lewis had remained a confirmed bachelor until his 50s when he met Joy Davidman. Their ensuing encounter with love and suffering led him to reconsider many of the beliefs he had held so staunchly before that fateful meeting.
