“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 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…
“Robertson and Mary together create a moving performance of beautiful clarity and precision” – TV Bomb
