The Western Stage presents a new adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’ chilling novel, “It Can’t Happen Here,” a cautionary tale of the fragility of democracy. When a demagogue becomes President of the United States, promising to return the country to greatness, we witness the rise of tyranny as the new President imposes a totalitarian rule with the help of a paramilitary force. Watching from the sidelines is journalist Doremus Jessup, who trusts the system will fix itself – until he ends up in prison camp. Doremus and a courageous few struggle to fight the new regime as part of a liberal rebellion.
Performs June 2 – 23, 2018 in the Studio Theatre at Hartnell College, Performing Arts Building K (116). Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.westernstage.com/tickets or at the Box Office: (831)755-6816.
This event is wheelchair accessible. Those requiring interpreters and/or real-time captioners, please contact the Box Office at least one week prior to your arrival: (831)755-6816.
