Event description

Description

Arena Civic Theatre presents a staged reading of It Can't Happen Here.

It Can't Happen Here is Sinclair Lewis' 1936 novel about the rise of fascism in America. Set during the Great Depression and under the shadow of Huey Long, the story detailed events yet to play out across Europe with the outbreak of World War II. Lewis explores political trends and social patterns that remain familiar -- and ominous -- today. More of a call to action than an alarm, the novelist renders a chilling and prophetic world that remains timely and frighteningly relevant in this faithful adaptation commissioned in 2016 by Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

This is a fundraising event for ACT.

**Thursdays performance will include a talk back.**
