When: December 7th - December 23rd, Various Times

Where: Old City Performing Arts Center / 111 State St. Knoxville 

It's a Wonderful Life is based on the story, The Greatest Gift by Philip Van Doren Stern. Adapted by Joe Landry.

George Bailey dreams of going to college and traveling the world. But after he sends his younger brother to college and stays at home to manage the family business, his life begins to feel crushingly ordinary. One Christmas Eve, bruised by quiet desperation and unable to recognize himself, George reaches his breaking point. Would the world be better off without him?

Many audiences know this story as the classic film It's A Wonderful Life. With live foley and a skilled ensemble of actors, River & Rail presents a radio adaptation by Joe Landry as a nod to the film's source: a short story by Philip Van Doren Stern which was privately printed as a Christmas card and distributed to the author's friends in 1943.

This play is a Christmas card to Knoxville: a show about the power of community, the sacrifices we make for those we love, and the true spirit of Christmas.
