It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is a stage play adaptation of Frank Capra’s film classic. At the time of the film’s initial release, it was popular for films to be adapted and performed live on the radio in front of a studio audience- “Screen Directors Playhouse” style. This adaptation is set at a live radio broadcast in the late 1940s, with five actors playing all of the characters all in front of you, the live studio audience!
