“Alabama Story” is a play written in the past decade, inspired by real events of the late 1950’s.

At the heart of the play is a collision of racial tensions and censorship during segregation and the civil rights movement.

On Friday, “Alabama Story” premieres at Chattanooga Theatre Centre.

Beth Gumnick is the director.
Next week - on Tuesday, January 25th at 7:30 PM - CTC will host a Zoom chat with Kenneth Jones, the playwright of “Alabama Story.”
