Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending a performance of “C.S. Lewis on Stage” in a packed Smothers Theatre on the Pepperdine University campus. The event was hosted by the Pepperdine University Center for Faith and Learning, which is directed by Dr. Gary Selby. I saw Professor Caron and Professor Cochran there from the School of Law, and there very well may have been more law school colleagues there in the capacity crowd.
“C.S. Lewis on Stage” features acclaimed actor Tom Key in a solo dramatization of the personality and fiction of the beloved author. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis, the Center for Faith and Learning hosted this event to remember Lewis’s life and work. Drawing on C. S. Lewis’s spiritual autobiography, Surprised by Joy, as well as on characters from such works as The Great Divorce and The Screwtape Letters, Key’s performance places the audience in the presence of Lewis himself, as though they are attending one his popular public appearances.

There are many freestanding law schools in existence, but I, for one, appreciate the opportunities afforded by our connection to a larger university. Last evening was one of those occasions.
