THE STORY

The Magician’s Nephew is the first of seven stories in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. It is the tale about a boy named Digory and his friend Polly who are tricked by his whimsical Uncle Andrew into embarking on a series of magical adventures. They are brought into other worlds where they encounter the selfish Queen Jadis from an enchanted declining land, and the powerful lion Aslan from the newly created Narnia. Can Digory complete the task he’s given by Aslan to ensure the safety of Narnia and the restored health of his dying mother?

The Creation of the World and Other Business

Both entertaining and thought provoking in a carnival-type atmosphere, The Creation of the World and Other Business is presented this season in celebration of the 100th birthday of world renowned playwright, Arthur Miller. Dividing his play into three acts and also “three questions on the human dilemma,” the story begins with a charming and gently humorous retelling of Adam and Eve (and God) in the Garden of Eden. After their expulsion from paradise, Eve gives birth to Cain, watched over by a scheming Lucifer—who seeks to share the power of a God now angered by the errant ways of his creations. In the concluding portion of the play, with mounting dramatic intensity, Cain kills his brother, Abel, and is sent out as a wanderer, as the final dilemma is explored: When everyone wants justice, why do we go on creating injustice? Throughout the action, which alternates scenes of sprightly humor with absorbing confrontations between God and Lucifer and God and his fallible creations, the striking pertinence of the play becomes ever clearer. It is a parable for our time, and all time, rich with philosophic insights and alive with vivid theatricality.
