The Glencullen Dundrum Musical and Dramatic Society is proud to present their latest play, a fresh yet faithful reworking of Frank Capra’s iconic film ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.
George, our main character, selflessly puts all his hopes and dreams of travelling the world to one side in order to do the right thing and run his father’s savings and loan business. But, nothing seems to be going his way until he catches a break and marries his high school sweetheart. Together they start a family and live in a big house and all is well until disaster strikes!
George cannot bear the thought of carrying on and just as he decides to end his life he is visited by Clarence, a bumbling, but possibly wise angel, who has been sent to help him in his hour of need.
This adaptation of ‘It’s a wonderful life’ is a new take but remains true to the original themes of hope, sacrifice and redemption in small town America. The time-honored film is one of Capra’s best and a personal favourite of the director’s own work.
