It’s a Wonderful Life is based on the story, The Greatest Gift by Philip Van Doren Stern from the screenplay by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra, and Jo Swerling.
Based on the beloved holiday movie with a clever twist: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters and take on sound effects. George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man, has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
“One of the best holiday shows around. This is a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with a classic story of love and redemption.”
“A well-loved tale told with style, charm and a heart so big it could burst the ribcage of the harshest Grinch.”
Kerry Reid, The Chicago Tribune
