Barrington Stage Company presents the holiday show, This Wonderful Life, written by Steve Murray and conceived by Mark Setlock. Tom Beckett stars in the solo show, playing over 30 roles, including George Bailey, Old Man Potter, Mary, and even Zuzu. Andrew Volkoff directs.
Frank Capra's beloved holiday movie classic becomes a tour-de-force one-man show in this unique theatrical event. It's Christmas Eve as our inconsolable hero George Bailey stands on a bridge, ready to end his life, certain he has failed his family and community. Out of nowhere, Clarence, an eager angel-in-waiting, comes to George's rescue and helps him see what the world would have been like had he not lived. Through a magical series of sequences, Clarence restores George to his family while earning his own wings. For lovers of the movie or anyone looking for some winter magic, you won't want to miss this amazing holiday heart-warmer! This Wonderful Life reminds us of the power of friendship and family...the perfect holiday gift.
