To Kill a Mockingbird
directed by Vivienne McLaren


Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' opens in a sleepy Alabama town in the midst of the Great Depression, where Scout and her brother Jem live with their widowed father, Atticus Finch. Reminiscent of a bygone era, the play immerses us in a simpler time as the children play outside in the summer, act out stories and muse about their mysterious neighbour, Boo Radley. The façade of the seemingly peaceful town begins to crack when a young black man is accused of a terrible crime. Driven by an unshakeable moral conviction, local lawyer Atticus defends the man in a trial that sends violent waves through the community. Timeless and lingering, this hard-hitting work explores prejudice, compassion and the courage to do what is right.


In this version, Scout appears as an adult to narrate the story.
