It Can't Happen Here
A dramatic reading and multimedia presentation
“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross,” So stated Sinclair Lewis in 1935 in his popular novel “It Can’t Happen Here”, which two years later was adapted to the stage and performed in 15 cities simultaneously by the Federal Theatre Project. The evening’s program by the Indelible Voices Projects features a dramatic reading of Lewis’ play by a talented group of local actors as well as a presentation on Sinclair Lewis, the Federal Theatre Project, and the impact of “It Can’t Happen Here” in the 30s and its implications for our own time.
For information on the tickets: call (415) 378-7235. E-mail: marcusd [at] igc.org. ($12, Students/Seniors $8)
