Alabama Story

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 27

What is it about books that makes some people so afraid? Senator E.W. Higgins is up in arms about Garth Williams' new book The Rabbits' Wedding, a children's story about two rabbits who marry. Higgins' main objection is that one of the rabbits is white and the other is black, and in Alabama in 1959, even the hint of miscegenation — and in a children's book, no less — is cause for alarm. Higgins demands it be removed from all Alabama libraries. One librarian, Emily Wheelock Reed, refuses to pull it. Books, and the ideas with their pages, are worth fighting for, Reed argues. Kenneth Jones' play Alabama Story is based on a true story. Williams, the illustrator of Stuart Little and the Little House on the Prairie books, had no idea his picture book about a rabbit wedding would spark a political fight that threatened the well-being of an entire state. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents Alabama Story to open the second half of its season. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (January 2 to 27) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $19 to $92. $19-$92

The Wolves

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 3

Sarah DeLappe's play The Wolves will appear to be familiar territory for many parents in the Repertory Theatre St. Louis' audience. In it a team of teenage girls stretch before an indoor soccer game. But the only parent nearby is the team coach, who is too hungover to pay much attention to his athletes, and the girls are free to speak honestly to each other, and about each other. As the season progresses, a new teammate, growing resentments, discussions of various boyfriends and the flashes of unexpected cruelty reveal that behind their confidence on the field, each of them is still a young woman finding her way toward adulthood. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents The Wolves Tuesday through Sunday (January 18 to February 3) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $46 to $71. $46-$71
