October 20-29, 2023 | A Studio 400 Production
WRITTEN BY KENNETH JONES
DIRECTED BY GAVIN PARMLEY
Inspired by true events from 1959, as the Civil Rights movement is brewing, a segregationist State Senator and a no-nonsense State Librarian clash over the content of a children’s book. Meanwhile, a reunion of childhood friends — an African American man and a woman of white privilege — provides a private counterpoint to the public events swirling in the state capital. Political foes, star-crossed lovers, and one feisty children’s author inhabit a Deep South of the imagination that brims with humor, heartbreak, and hope.
Studio400 productions are intended for mature audiences.
