Kenneth Jones' new play, “Alabama Story,” continues The Rep’s Mainstage season with a potent collision of art and politics, Jan. 2-27, at the Loretto Hilton Center at Webster University, 130 Edgar Road in Webster Groves.

A determined librarian and a segregationist senator face off over an innocent children’s book in 1959 Montgomery. Depicting the marriage of two rabbits – who happen to have different-colored fur – the story has Sen. E.W. Higgins calling for a book ban. But even as the pressure mounts, librarian Emily Wheelock Reed refuses to yield to censorship. Inspired by true events, “Alabama Story” is a stirring testament to free expression.
