It's A Wonderful Life
The iconic story of idealist George Bailey, whose dreams look set to be dashed by small-town scandal and big business. Alone on a bridge, he decides that everyone would be better off without him… or would they? It falls to hapless guardian angel, Clarence, to try and save him.
In a new production that premiered to excellent reviews in London last year, the magical story of Frank Capra’s iconic film is retold as a radio play, complete with sound effects created live on stage.
Multi award-winning David Benson, one of the UK’s most acclaimed character actors stars. Benson starred in a series of award-winning one-man shows about Kenneth Williams, Frankie Howerd, Noël Coward and Princess Diana. He also appeared in over 1,000 performances of the acclaimed production of One Man Two Guvnors at the National Theatre and in the West End.
This loving tribute to the golden era of the wireless is a fresh take on a heart-warming and timely classic.
