In honor of upcoming Banned Books Week (September 25 – October 1), Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (WHAT) is offering two-for-one Alabama Story tickets to CLAMS library card holders.
Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones is receiving its East Coast premiere at WHAT, now through September 25. The production features Alan Campbell, Samantha Able, Christopher Chisholm, Valerie Stanford, Chauncy Thomas, and Nathan Winklestein. The timely relevance of this play is striking, as reports of challenged rights are reported daily – particularly in the South.
In the play, a gentle children’s book with an apparent hidden message stirs the passions of a segregationist senator and a no-nonsense state librarian in 1959 Montgomery, just as the civil rights movement is flowering. Based on the conflict reported world-wide between Alabama State Librarian Emily Wheelock Reed and Senator E.O. Eddins over Garth Williams’ children’s book The Rabbit’s Wedding, Alabama Story puts political foes, star-crossed childhood friends, and one feisty author on the same page to conjure a Deep South of the imagination. For tickets and information go to the WHAT box office at 2357 Rte. 6, Wellfleet, call 508.349.9428, or visit what.org.
