Alabama Story: A New Southern Play

January 21 – February 6

Inspired by real events, Kenneth Jones’ new play is the story of a bullying but complex segregationist senator in 1959 who wants a controversial children’s book taken off the library shelves, but a fearless librarian refuses, putting both of their worlds at risk. Political foes, star-crossed lovers, and one feisty children’s author inhabit the same page in this new play brimming with humor, humanity, heartbreak and hope. A selection of the CTC Book Club presented in the Circle Theatre.
