        It Can't Happen Here

It Can't Happen Here

the play shows, in a series of trenchant scenes in a small Vermont town, how a fascist movement begins, spreads and captures our free American institutions, and drives the few courageous and intelligent members of the community into a revolt which in the end we feel will prove successful. This is a fresh, forthright document, indignant, theatrical, human, occasionally humorous, setting forth clearly the idea that if the members of a democracy really care about liberty, they will guard it at the cost of their lives.

written by Sinclair Lewis And John C. Moffit, Adapted from Lewis' novel IT CaN'T HaPPeN HeRe
