In commemoration of Black History Month, Emerson Theater Collaborative presents playwright Kenneth Jones’ Alabama Story at Sedona United Methodist Church February 22 – 24, 2019.
It’s 1959 Alabama and segregationist Senator E.W. Higgins wants a controversial children’s picture book — about a white rabbit who marries a black rabbit — purged from the state library. But librarian Emily Wheelock Reed refuses, putting both of their worlds at risk in a time of extraordinary social change. Inspired by real events, Alabama Story brings forward issues of racism and censorship during the Jim Crow era of the Deep South.
All shows will be at the Fellowship Hall at Sedona United Methodist Church, 110 Indian Cliffs Road, Sedona, AZ 86351.
Tickets are available at the door or online at bit.ly/AlabamaStory. Show times are February 22 & 23 at 7 p.m. and February 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 each. Seniors and students are $20.
