Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Sinclair Lewis’ darkly satirical It Can’t Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. Oscar-nominated actor David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck) will join many of the previous cast members to bring this political drama to life. On Tuesday, October 13 a radio production of Sinclair Lewis’ novel will broadcast at 5PM PDT/7PM CST/8PM EDT via YouTube. A live Q&A session with the creative team will take place following the broadcast. Mark your calendars.
