C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien production set for Belfast Cathedral

St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast will play host to literary greats C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien this September in a new stage production.

'Wardrobes and Rings' is a three person theatre piece featuring David Payne and Marc Whitmore.

The play will transport audiences back to Oxford in 1963, to the Eagle and Child pub, where legendary authors J.R.R Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis meet for what turns out to the very last time. 

Simon Cordner, Business Manager at Belfast Cathedral says this is 'an event not to be missed.'

'Wardrobes and Rings' will be performed in Belfast this September.

He added: “We’re very fortunate to bring this production to Northern Ireland as part of the UK wide tour this autumn for what I’m sure will an amazing night.

"What better place to celebrate the lives of two of the most notable authors than here in Belfast, the home city of C.S. Lewis. If you’re a fan of Narnia, the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit or even The Screwtape Letters this will be a fantastic evening”

'Wardrobes and Rings' will be performed in Belfast this September.

The play comes following the huge success of 'An Evening with CS Lewis' which visited Belfast last year.

'Wardrobes and Rings' takes place at St Anne's Cathedral on Saturday September 23.

Tickets for the event are £12 and are available from the Belfast Cathedral Welcome Desk or online at or
