Alabama Story

Wednesday, Jan 31, 2018 - Sunday, Feb 18, 2018 at Clarence Brown Theatre Mainstage

By Kenneth Jones  •  Playwright’s Notes
Directed by Kate Buckley

“Dynamic! Rich! Impressive! Cleverly crafted! Articulate! Razor-sharp!”    ~ Salt Lake Tribune

A gentle children’s book stirs the passions of a segregationist senator and a no-nonsense state librarian in 1959 Montgomery, just as the Civil Rights Movement is flowering. Inspired by true events, Alabama Story puts politicians, star-crossed childhood friends, and one feisty author in a struggle for the soul of the Deep South.
