42. Its A Wonderful Life

by Doug Rand
From the screenplay by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Frank Capra, and Jo Swerling
Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

It’s a Wonderful Life is a fast-moving stage adaptation from the classic film with the same name. The play tells the tale of George Bailey, a man whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel who shows him just how different the world would be if George Bailey had never been born.

It’s a Wonderful Life is not only a joyful Christmas tale — it’s the gorgeous love story of George and Mary Bailey and a vivid portrait of a time gone by. This story remains on the top of the “must-see, most-loved” Christmas stories.
