Just in time for the November elections, we present a timely new work about Robert Kennedy’s final months during his electrifying presidential campaign. Bobby’s transformation into a bold champion for the underrepresented is celebrated in this tour de force solo play, which highlights Bobby’s impactful speeches, private apprehensions, and deep commitment to advancing civil rights. This new work dubbed “riveting theatre” by Broadway World is written and performed by David Arrow (previously seen as Alan Turing in Breaking the Code).

Jewel Theatre is pleased to be a broadcast partner for Berkeley Rep’s IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE, a radio play by Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen, adapted from the novel by Sinclair Lewis, which reprises their 2016 stage production of the story.

 

Available here free on demand from October 13 thru November 8, 2020.

 

IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE

By Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen
Adapted from the novel by Sinclair Lewis
Directed by Lisa Peterson

 

Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, 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. In 2016, Berkeley Rep unveiled a new stage adaptation of Lewis’ prescient novel; one week after that production ended, the presidential election roiled our nation. Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production with the same director, but this time as a radio play in four episodes, just in time for the 2020 election.
