      LAMB S PLAYERS THEATRE TO PRESENT THE PREMIERE OF

      C.S. LEWIS S

      TILL WE HAVE FACES

      AUGUST 13 to SEPTEMBER 19, 1999


      Lamb s Players Theatre is pleased to announce the premiere of
      TILL WE HAVE FACES, a riveting new stage adaptation of the novel
      by C.S. Lewis.

      First presented by Lamb s Players as a workshop production at the
      C.S. Lewis Centennial Celebration in Cambridge, England last
      summer, TILL WE HAVE FACES received an overwhelming response.
      That encouraged Lamb s Players to mount it as a full production
      in its 1999 Season.

      Though perhaps his most overlooked book, TILL WE HAVE FACES was
      Lewis own personal favorite. As literature it has its own unique
      style: part myth, part mystery, part biographical novel.

      Using the Greek myth of the encounter between the god Cupid and
      the beautiful girl Psyche, Lewis explores issues of power,
      beauty, spiritual experience and the self-centeredness of human
      love. His central character, Orual - Psyche s older sister ? is
      one of the most fascinating and layered women in literature.

      The Lamb s Players stage adaptation uses a cast of 12 and a vivid
      and physical theatricality to bring this haunting tale to life.

      TILL WE HAVE FACES was developed under the direction of Artistic
      Director, Robert Smyth. Costume Design by Jeanne Reith, with
      Scenic Design by Michael Buckley, Light Design by Nathan Peirson
      and original music by Deborah Gilmour Smyth.

      C.S. Lewis, one of the 20th Century s best selling authors, was
      on the faculty of Oxford University for thirty year. Repeatedly
      passed over for professorship at Oxford he went on instead to the
      chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge.

      As an author he tackled a range of subjects and styles from
      poetry, science fiction, autobiography, children s books,
      theology and cultural studies,

      In 1936 The Allegory of Love was published. Today it remains a
      respected textbook on Medieval Literature. During the war his
      book The Screwtape Letters was a popular hit. Today he is
      probably best know for his children s series The Chronicles of
      Narnia.

      TILL WE HAVE FACES was published in 1956. Lewis had carried the
      idea around for decades. He first envisioned it as an epic poem
      or a mask play. It was the story ideas and theatrical
      possibilities that attracted Lamb s Players to an adaptation.

      Celebrating its 28th year, Lamb s Players is San Diego s third
      largest theatre company and maintains the regions only year round
      acting company. The company s beautiful resident theatre located
      in the historic Spreckels Building in the charming seaside
      community of Coronado.

      It also mounts productions throughout the year at the Lyceum
      Theatre in Horton Plaza, The California Center for the Arts,
      Escondido, the Playhouse On Plaza in National City and each
      December at the Hotel del Coronado.

      In addition, Lamb s Players Educational Outreach is the largest
      in the county, impacting over 60,000 students each year.
