directed by Gerry McCrudden

”Each man's life touches so many other lives, and when he isn't around he leaves an awful hole.”

No one is born to be a failure. No one is poor who has friends. Simple thoughts were the inspiration for ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ one of the most beloved films ever made. With this adaptation now brought to the stage as an American 'radio play' of the 1940s.

George Bailey, pillar of his community, a kind man dedicated to the welfare of others. Through the actions of the town's avaricious local banker, Mr Potter, George is driven to the point of suicide. In answer to the prayers of the townsfolk for the missing George, a merciful angel comes to the rescue - showing George what a sad and sorry place the world would have been without him. George now realises that he has a Wonderful Life.

A life affirming message of redemption, hope restored and renewed. All will be well.
