The Bridge House Theatre SE20, a fringe venue in south east London, will present two new productions, It's a Wonderful Life and The Uglies Take Penge for Christmas 2014.
Artistic Director Guy Retallack will direct It's a Wonderful Life, which runs at the venue from 9 December 2014 to 3 January 2015. Written by Tony Palermo, this will be performed as a live radio play in front of a studio audience.
The drama follows the story of a dreamer, the idealistic George Bailey from a small American town, Bedford Falls, just after the Great Depression of the 1930s. Standing alone on a bridge on Christmas Eve, George has decided with all his dreams of escape and adventure quashed by his love of family and civic duty, that everyone would be better off without him... or would they?
This will run in rep with a new pantomime The Uglies Take Penge which has previously been seen at the Edinburgh Festival.
"Annie and Fannie are heading to the Palace to meet their new sister Cinderella for the very first time - however en route they lose their way and end up in deepest, darkest south east London...Can you help Annie and Fannie reunite with their sister Cinderella? Oh yes you can!"
Cast and creatives for both productions are yet to be announced.
