Coming Soon: To Kill A Mockingbird

In this adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, racial tensions swirl in the pressure cooker of 1935 Macomb, Alabama.  In the midst of this turbulent era, compassionate attorney Atticus Finch attempts to defend a black man who is falsely accused of rape. Told through the memories of a grown up Jean Louise “Scout” Finch, the play explores the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class. Through her memories, Scout recounts the consequences of “doing the right thing” and illustrates how Lee’s ideas of hope, humanity, and justice are just as resonant today as they were when her novel was written.
