A classic of modern literature, the 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird by author Harper Lee (1926-2016) is brought to life in this engaging stage adaptation.

The plot and characters are loosely based on Lee’s observations of her family, neighbors and community growing up in small Alabama town during the 1930’s. To Kill a Mockingbird uses humor and warmth to tell a serious story of race and injustice.

The novel and play centers on honorable attorney Atticus Finch as he defends an African-American man who has been unfairly charged with raping a white woman. The case makes Atticus and his children the target of anger and bigotry as he struggles to convince a jury of Southern white men of the 1930’s that a black man is innocent.
