It Can't Happen Here
Print this page

LetPetomane Theatre Ensemble and Theatre 502 will honor the 75th anniversary of a Sinclair Lewis classic with the reading of It Can't Happen Here tonight.

It Can't Happen Here will be read at the Parkside Studio, located at Iroquois Amphitheater in Iroquois Park.  The performance will cost only $1 and will occur tonight at 8 p.m.

The Sinclair Lewis satirical novel and play It Can't Happen Here showcases a power-addicted politician who becomes the United States president.  He soon forms a militia and a dictatorship much like Hitler.  

The play was first performed in 1936 in several theatres related to the Federal Theatre Project, a New Deal-created program that brought work for actors and other artists while also entertaining families and others that were low on money during the Great Depression.  

More information on the show can be found on the play's Facebook page.
