The saga of the everyman whose dreams of adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve to save him from despair.

In our American culture, It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation has all your favorite characters: George and Mary Hatch, Clarence, Uncle Billy, Violet, and, of course, the Scrooge-like villain, Mr. Potter. This is a fine dramatization that celebrates the faith and humanity of the season and is a holiday treat for the whole family!
