ReGroup to Present Sinclair Lewis' IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE

Now in their final four performances of WILLIAM INGE's: A COMPLEX EVENING, ("These play are NO 'Picnic'"!) the NY Premiere of Inge's unseen later One-Acts, ReGroup is proud to announce the rest of its 2016 plans!

The Lost Group Theatre Plays: Vol 4 will be out in July! As before, this 3 volume collection will contain unpublished or long-out-of-print scripts of the Group's rare play. Beginning with Sidney Kingsley's Pulitzer Prize Winning play MEN IN WHITE, the book continues with the unaltered (previously unpublished) version of Dawn Powell's THE PARTY (Renamed, and heavily edited by the Group under the name BIG NIGHT) The third play will be announced momentarily.

'ReGroup Reads' returns for the summer with 'pay what you can' readings of Pulitzer Prize Winning Plays in order to celebrate the Pulitzer's 100th anniversary in 2016. Having already presented Pulitzer readings of Kingsley's Men in White, Paul Green's In Abraham's Bosom, and Sidney Howard's They Knew What They Wanted. The current summer series will focus on rarer works, like Miss Lulu Bett by Zona Gale, Hell Bent Fer Heaven by Hatcher Hughes, Alison's House by Susan Glaspell, The Green Pastures by Marc Connelly, and more.

For fall on 2016, ReGroup will begin a season focused on the Federal Theatre. The season will begin with the previously announced revival of Sinclair Lewis' IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE (What Will Happen When America Has a Dictator). The original play will be presented on its 80th anniversary - and it foreshadows the current Presidential climate with the candidate even deciding to build a silver wall around the county. ReGroup will also be presenting an 80th anniversary of the script in order to coincide with the show re-release.
