It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

By Joe Landry

Help an angel earn his wings. A 1940’s live radio broadcast re-imagines the classic story of George Bailey, a man ready to throw it all away before a stranger comes to show him how important he is. Be reminded that we all have a place and celebrate how wonderful life is for the holidays.

From the Artistic Director
I’m constantly amazed by all the creative ways playwrights re-imagine works when they adapt them to the stage. This adaptation of Capra’s well-loved takes a brilliant mashup of old time radio, live theater, and classic movie and mixes them all up together into a heartfelt treat for the whole family. The same earnestness imbued in the original is what makes Joe Landry’s play so perfect for the holidays. It is at once completely familiar and brand new.
