C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) and J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) were lions of 20th century British fantasy and distinguished faculty members at Oxford University. Their robust philosophical discourse served an uncommon friendship that was not without its differences. Life’s circumstances and unresolved disagreements forced an uncomfortable season of estrangement. In Wardrobes and Rings we join “Jack” and “Tollers,” as they knew each other, at Oxford’s historic Eagle and Child pub for one last visit, tempered by thawing humor, confession, and reconciliation. Remarkable lives. Memorable theatre.
