"The Screwtape Letters" - Playing in Washington, D.C.

Interview: 'Screwtape' Actor on Playing a Demon, Modern Temptation

"Whereas in our day, again going back to Lewis, the idea of the devil and Satan is being minimized in our culture and yet we are very quick to point out how much evil there is in the world. But where is that evil rooted, where does it come from, and where does it come from in our hearts?
