Northeast Stage is thrilled to present this heartwarming classic film to the stage as a live radio play to celebrate the holiday season this December here in Greenport on the North Fork.
It’s A Wonderful Life is, at its core, a work about worth and friendship – and quite often friendships we take for granted. For many years, the film has been a holiday favorite, but mounting Joe Landry’s brilliant radio play adaptation of this title is an ongoing lesson. I have directed or mounted this production five or six times to date, but with each incarnation I learned a little bit more about George Bailey, and a little bit more about myself. I also believe that any presentation of this piece completely and earnestly impacts each and every audience member who again witnesses the revelation of George Bailey’s doubts and worth as a man, husband, father and human. And shall we always be reminded of this piece’s most valuable lesson: “Remember, no man is a failure who has friends…”
