ATI brings ‘Alabama Story’ to Indiana for first time

Playwrights talk new play “Alabama Story”

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The play, Alabama Story opens at the Studio Theater on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. and runs through November 17.

It’s the Indiana premiere! Step into the Deep South of the Imagination. An Indiana native who becomes state librarian of Alabama finds her life and livelihood at risk when a controversial children’s book crosses her desk.

The innocent tale of a white rabbit marrying a black rabbit is angering politicians in the Civil Rights era. But will Emily Reed give in to demands to have the book burned?

Meet history’s forgotten hero of free speech in the fact-inspired, highly theatrical new American play brimming with humor, heart and humanity.
