Susan of Narnia

Sat 6 Apr 2024

From the writer behind “Mata Hari-Female Spy”, “BOND!” and “Done To Death By Jove!

“Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy”.

So begins ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’, the first of C S Lewis’ seven “Chronicles of Narnia” ending with “The Last Battle” in which the Lion, Aslan creates the Real Narnia, and the four children pass into it to live for eternity in happiness.

Except they don’t – because one of them, Susan Pevensie, isn’t allowed!

This is a story about what might have happened to her after she was left behind.

When she first went through the wardrobe, Susan was 12. Now it’s 1967, and Susan is 39… just before Christmas…

'The tragic humour that emerges at times, gives this piece a depth beyond a mere character piece. Katharine Mary is an excellent performer'


'Robertson and Mary together create a moving performance of beautiful clarity and precision'
