This Wonderful Life
3:00PM, Sunday, December 3, 2017
Walter S. Gubelmann Auditorium

Like the film that inspired it, it quietly celebrates a simple truth: Little things mean more than we know.” – The Boston Globe

The classic Christmas film “It’s a Wonderful Life” has been lovingly adapted into a one-man stage production staring Jeremy Kendall. George Bailey, Clarence, Mr. Potter, and the gang come to life as Kendall creates a heartwarming story about the effect one hardworking man’s life has on the people around him.

The Four Arts will also present the original film version of “It’s a Wonderful Life” on December 2nd as part of the Friday Film Series.

This Wonderful Life is a one-man play beautifully acted by Jeremy Kendall. Based on the iconic 1946 holiday favorite film, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the production brings to life over 32 familiar people in an amazing display of physical and verbal virtuosity. Kendall portrays the Jimmy Stewart-inspired George Bailey, and the whole cast of lovable characters from Bedford Falls including Clarence the Angel, Mary, Zuzu and all the townsfolk who rely on him to save them from the greedy Mr. Potter. Like the film, the play centers around the character of George,  a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence. Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born. Jeremy’s  75-minute tour-de-force is at once inspiring, funny, poignant and most of all, uplifting.

Written by Steve Murray, conceived by Mark Setlock.
