Join EMAZ for a remarkable evening…

Every Man Arizona (“EMAZ”) creates events that plug-in Christian men with each other and local churches.  Sometimes this means creating events, independently, like the upcoming Men’s Expo.  At other times, we partner with events that enrich Christian men, their families and their associates. EMAZ is “all in” on events that build Christian  character by renewing, enriching and engaging men!

Introducing David Payne as CS Lewis
David PayneLondon-born was living in Nashville, TN with his wife in 1996 when he spotted a Tennessee Performing Arts Center ad that asked for auditions for Shadowlands, “British accents a help.” He had the accent, but little stage experience. “I thought I might land a small role because of my accent,” Payne said, but instead he won the lead role of Lewis.

Since those early performances in 1996, Payne who, on stage, uncannily looks like Lewis, has since played the famous author in a number of Shadowland productions. Yet it is his portrayal of Lewis in An Evening with C.S. Lewis that has won him many accolades and thrilled the many thousands that have attended over 500 performances.

The Setting

The year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.

Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.


Described by critics as ‘Extraordinary!’ ‘A Must See!’ ‘A Master Class!’
An Evening with C.S. Lewis has proved again and again to be an enthralling theatrical experience and one which has led many thousands to discover (or rediscover) the continuing impact of a man who died over 50 years ago and whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of the 20th Century.
