One of America’s most beloved Christmas classics tells the story of George Bailey, an everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. When a guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve, George is saved from despair and reminded of what the world would have been like had he never been born. Best known as the Frank Capra movie starring James Stewart, the story is a natural for stage adaptation and has enjoyed live theater success for over sixty years.
