1959: Evil Writer Traps Rural People In Comic

Abbie’n’Slats continued its 1959 storyline about the heartless Alabama Brown, a writer who was apparently determined to embarass the heck out of everyone by putting them onstage and making them say what they said every day in real life.

I can’t help but think this would make the most boring play ever, even if Alabama, as he planned, narrated it with "true hidden meaning."
