    C.S Lewis
    Author

    Author: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

    Born in Belfast, Ireland, on November 29, 1898, Clive Staples Lewis was not only a renowned novelist, poet and Christian apologist but also one of the leading scholars and literary critics of the 20th century.

    Educated at various schools, as well as by private tutors, he was awarded a scholarship at University College, Oxford, in 1916, but his studies there were interrupted by service in the First World War, in which he was wounded. After graduating in 1923, he taught at Magdalen College, Oxford, until 1954, when he was elected to the newly created Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.

    Lewis wrote more than 30 books, among them Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters and the seven children's novels that make up The Chronicles of Narnia. The Narnia books have sold more than 100 million copies and have inspired several screen adaptations.

    In 1956, Lewis married American writer Joy Davidman; she died of cancer four years later. Lewis himself died in Oxford on November 22 1963. In 2013, on the 50th anniversary of his death, he was honoured with a memorial in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.

    Adrian Mitchell
    Dramatist

    Dramatist: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    Born near Hampstead Heath in North London in 1932, Adrian Mitchell was educated in Wiltshire and at Christ Church, Oxford. He worked as a reporter with the Oxford Mail and the Evening Standard, then as a freelance journalist, writing about books, pop music, jazz and television for many British newspapers.

    His extensive work in the theatre as a playwright and librettist spanned four decades, starting with his verse adaptation for Peter Brook's Royal Shakespeare Company production of Peter Weiss's Marat/Sade at the Aldwych in 1964. His subsequent work, comprising both adaptations and original plays, has been performed not only at the RSC but also at Britain's National Theatre and Unicorn Theatre, and around the world.

    His adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for the RSC opened in December 1998 to huge critical acclaim. It subsequently transferred to London's Barbican in March 1999 and was revived in Stratford-upon-Avon in November 1999. The RSC production was presented at Sadlers Wells at Christmas of 2000 and 2001.

    Other works and adaptations for the stage include Aladdin, No One Rides the Unicorn, Animal Farm (adapted with Peter Hall from George Orwell's book), A Child's Christmas in Wales (adapted with Jeremy Brooks from the original by Dylan Thomas), Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (RSC), and three popular adaptations of Beatrix Potter's stories: Jemima Puddle-Duck and Her Friends, Tom Kitten and His Friends and Peter Rabbit and His Friends.

     As well as being a prolific playwright, television screenwriter and lyricist, Mitchell published four novels - If You See Me Comin', The Bodyguard, Wartime and Man Friday - along with numerous well-loved books of poetry for adults and children, and several storybooks for young people. He died in North London at the age of 76 on December 20, 2008.
