It’s A Wonderful Life is the iconic story of idealist George Bailey, whose dreams look set to be dashed by small-town scandal and big business. Alone on a bridge, contemplating life, he decides that everyone would be better off without him… or would they? It falls to hapless guardian angel, Clarence, to try and save him.

In a new British production that received critical acclaim in London during its premiere last year, the story of Frank Capra’s iconic film is retold as a radio play, complete with sound effects created live on stage. This tribute to the golden era of the wireless is a fresh take on a heart-warming movie classic.

Award-winning actor David Benson is joining the cast of It’s A Wonderful Life - The Radio Play, playing four characters: Pa Bailey, Mr. Gower, Mr Potter and Officer Bert. The rest of the cast are Oliver Stoney (George Bailey), Richard Albrecht, Lynsey Beauchamp, Benjamin Chamberlain, Augustina Seymour.

It’s a Wonderful Life will be appearing at Malvern Theatres on June 9-10. Tickets are on sale at the Box Office 01684 892277 and online at malvern-theatres.co.uk.
