Alabama Story

Robert Sacheli
Performance Dates

A librarian in segregation-era Alabama purchases a new childrens’ book for the library, The Rabbits’ Wedding. But the nature of the seemingly innocent wedding draws the attention of a grandstanding, intolerant state senator, who leads a crusade against it. When the librarian stands her ground, the attention of the country focuses on the unexpected battle. Based on a true story from the 50s, this is an area premiere.
