It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
Adapted by Joe Landry
Based upon the works by Greatest Gift Corporation

This beloved American holiday classic comes to captivating life as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.
