Wonderful Life

A famous Christmas movie is heading to an equally famous venue next month as the Frank Capra classic It’s a Wonderful Life comes to Rosslyn Chapel from Friday 5 – Monday 22 December.

Adapted by Simon Beattie the show is based on the screenplay of the film and tells of George Bailey, a man trapped in his home-town life in Bedford Falls and his continuous battles with the villainous Mr Potter.

George despairs that he cannot escape to a new life and is about to ‘Throw away God’s greatest gift’ when he is sent Clarence Odbody, the bumbling Angel (Second Class!) who by helping George tries to earn his Angel wings…Clarence helps George realise that life in Bedford Falls, perhaps isn’t so bad after all…

For those wanting to get even further in to the festive mood on Saturday 13 December at Rosslyn Chapel there will be a special evening with a Christmas themed buffet, mulled wine, mince pies and a candlelight tour of the building.

And here’s a trailer for the film courtesy of YouTube:
