    About David Payne

    “Auditions for Shadowlands, British accents a help!”

    It was those seven words that launched a 55 year old David Payne on the most unexpected journey of his life. Intrigued, he attended the audition at Nashville’s prestigious Tennessee Performing Arts Center in the hopes of landing a small part in this play about C.S. Lewis and his American wife. It was no surprise he nailed the British accent because, duh, he’s British! What was a surprise is that he landed the lead role and a stage career had been begun!

    Since those early performances in 1996, Payne who, on stage, uncannily looks like Lewis, has since played the famous author in a number of Shadowland productions. Yet it is his portrayal of Lewis in An Evening with C.S. Lewis that has won him many accolades and thrilled the many, many thousands that have attended over 700 performances.

    About the show:

    An Evening with C.S. Lewis – the year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.

    Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned The Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.

    Described by critics as “Extraordinary!” “A Must See!” “A Master Class!” An Evening with C.S. Lewis has proved again and again to be an enthralling theatrical experience and one which has led many thousands to discover (or rediscover) the continuing impact of a man who died over 50 years ago and whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of the 20th Century.

    Miss Kim said: “David Payne’s portrayal of C.S. Lewis was truly brilliant. The stage play is well-paced with a smart and witty script that reveals the love story within the biography of C.S. Lewis. I was educated, amazed, delighted and most of all - thoroughly entertained. BRAVO.”
