Balsam Range is a PineCone favorite. They’ve played in nearly every setting we’ve got, from the festival mainstage and Down Home Concert series to pick-up sessions in the hotel lobby during World of Bluegrass. As a band, they are quintessentially North Carolina. They make their home in Haywood County, North Carolina. It’s a close-knit community that sits in between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. That experience comes out in their music and songwriting. Family, faith, work and home are common themes.

Award-winning actor Max McLean’s tour de force performance captures C.S. Lewis’ magnetic personality, astonishing eloquence and self-deprecating wit to create an onstage experience venturing deep into the soul of one of the most influential thinkers of the past century.  

Using Lewis’ own words, this dazzling, multimedia, theatrical event explores:

  • What convinced Lewis of the divinity of Christ.  
  • Why the BBC gave him a huge audience to deliver wartime talks that would become Mere Christianity
  • How Hitler influenced the writing of The Screwtape Letters.
  • How his profound insights on prayer, heaven and the Second Coming of Christ influenced The Chronicles of Narnia.

Don’t miss this mesmerizing, one-of-a-kind stage experience that promises to take you further up and further in the heart and mind of C.S. Lewis.

The performance is followed by a post-show discussion with Max McLean.

Further Up & Further In has a run time of 90 minutes with no intermission. It is recommended for ages 13 and older, and children under age 4 are not admitted.
