Theatre On the Edge Readings
@ Hudson Theatre Works
Monday, March 11, 2019 7pm

A cautionary dark satire about the fragility of democracy and how fascism can take hold even in the land of liberty, IT CAN'T
HAPPEN HERE follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the
country to greatness. Witnessing the new president’s tyranny from the sidelines is a liberal, middle-class newspaper editor
from Vermont who trusts the system will fix itself—until he ends up in a prison camp. Sinclair Lewis’ eerily prescient 1935
novel gets a fresh update in this adaptation that examines what brings a citizenry to the point of sacrificing its own freedom
and how a courageous few can prevail to overcome the fall. Appropriate for Junior High Students and up.
