While nearly every child (and a great many adults) in Britain wanted to get inside the brain of C.S. Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, very few folks dared to touch his heart. Shadowlands, the Tony-nominated play by William Nicholson (First Knight, Gladiator), celebrates the late-life romance between Lewis and the American poet Joy Davidman.
