a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play"
For the second holiday season, Trinity Rep will bring Joe Landry "It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" to life. An adaptation of the heartwarming film classic, the production plays from December 9 - 31 in the Dowling Theatre. Trinity Rep’s Associate Artistic Director Tyler Dobrowsky directs.
After years of putting off his own dreams to help others, everyman George Bailey finds himself on the wrong end of humanity. His luck takes a nosedive when a rival businessman steals his last penny – along with his reputation.
Despondent on Christmas Eve, George is about to end his
life – until guardian angel Clarence steps in to save him. Bailey
rebuffs Clarence’s dose of perspective by angrily wishing he’d
never been born. Clarence obliges, showing George what life in Bedford
Falls would have been like without him. He eventually sees that he’s
truly “the richest man in town.”
Director Tyler Dobrowsky commented, It's’s fascinating
to watch the sound effects, like ice breaking or a car door slamming,
be performed on stage.”
Playwright Joe Landry’s published plays include "Vintage Hitchcock" and "Reefer Madness." Other projects include "Mothers and Sons," a musical (with Kevin Connors) and "Lifeboat, Dahling!" (with Bert Bernardi).
The show's first performance on December 9 at 7:30 p.m. has been designated Pay What You Can (PWYC). PWYC tickets go on sale at 6:30 p.m., with a limit of one ticket per person.
