The play follows the life of George Bailey from age 12 in year 1919 through his early college years into getting married to Mary Hatch and having 4 children.
His father has a building & loan business and on his death it passes down to George even though that stops George going to university. The business is run for the benefit of the local folk who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford a mortgage. Much to the annoyance of businessman Potter who tries his hardest to close down the Bailey company.
When George in desperation decides to commit suicide his guardian angel, Clarence, takes matters into his own hands.
This is a truly spirit-lifting play that could only be performed around Christmas time.
