Screwtape is a witty and thought-provoking adaptation of C. S. Lewis’ fascinating book The Screwtape Letters by, a masterpiece of satire. Screwtape, a demon and highly placed assistant of ‘Our Father Below’ and his nephew Wormwood, meddle with the lives of human beings on earth. They bring the audience a sly and ironic portrayal of human life which captures both the wildly comic and deeply serious nature of Lewis’ original text.
