British Actor David Payne Set To Tour “An Evening With C.S. Lewis”
British actor David Payne, who tours the world with his one-man show titled An Evening With C.S Lewis, in which he portrays the legendary author, poet and Christian philosopher C.S. Lewis, recently attended the 2014 National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention held Feb. 22-25 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. During the event, Payne met with media and industry leaders to discuss his upcoming U.S. tour.
“This year was my first experience attending NRB and I had the opportunity to meet with various media outlets and discuss my upcoming tour, An Evening With C.S. Lewis,” Payne says. “It was also great to meet some fellow Christians who are are working to build the Kingdom through their own enterprises and ministries and that was a nice and unexpected bonus!”
Payne, who has portrayed Lewis more than a thousand times for audiences all over the world, is renowned as the premier portrayer of the famed theologian. He is a favorite of The C.S. Lewis Foundation and regularly performs at its U.S. conferences and Oxbridge, the organization’s worldwide tri-annual conference in England.
