Irish Repertory Theatre presents this stage adaptation of Frank Capra’s beloved holiday-season drama about sacrifice and redemption in small-town America. More…
Christmas Eve, 1946...George Bailey, the nicest guy in town is in a terrible predicament. We find him perched precariously on a bridge, on the verge of suicide. Enter Clarence, George’s guardian angel, who has not yet earned his wings. Clarence shows George what Bedford Falls would be if George had never been born! Set in a radio station in the 1940s, with a live sound FX artist, this poignant drama features six actors portraying 25 characters.
See it if you enjoy seeing a classic film turned into a radio play. A winning cast of 6! Orlagh Cassidy is a wonder!!!
Don't see it if no reason not to see this production—perfect for the holiday season (despite the fact that it is sold out for the remainder of its run).
See it if you want to spend 70 minutes with a delightful cast who re-imagine an old movie (that I'm not particularly fond of). I loved this version.
Don't see it if intimate little plays are not your cup of tea.
See it if you want some nostalgic holiday cheer, and are a fan of the movie
Don't see it if you're expecting to see a full-fledged production, with all the scenes from the movie fully realized.
See it if you want to get an authentic glimpse of the 1940s... a Radio play, beautifully presented with wonderful acting. I hope they bring this back.
Don't see it if you do not like small intimate productions, with a big heart.
