    It Can’t Happen Here

    The Southern Maine Democratic Socialists of America presents a staged dramatic reading “IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE”. Adapted from his novel by Sinclair Lewis, and set in rural Vermont in 1936, the play tells the story of the rise of an American dictator. The play was originally produced by the Federal Theatre Project and was performed by 24 groups throughout the country.

    In 1938 Lewis wrote a version for the South Shore Players in Cohasset, Massachusetts. We are presenting this version as if it were done as a radio play.
