A STAGED READING OF
Adapted by Tony Taccone and Bennett Cohen
from the novel by Sinclair Lewis
The actors of Theatre9/12 have mostly been cast in shows throughout Seattle this summer, however we are delighted to come together for a special 2-performance event: the celebrated new adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here that premiered last year at Berkeley Repertory.
The novel from 1935 and this play imagine what would happen if a fascist became President of the United States.
This new version examines our own responsibility for the fragility of Democracy and how fascism could indeed happen here as we heed the mesmerizing call to “make America great again.”
Directed by Theatre9/12 Producer Paul O’Connell.
