Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird - A Play by Christopher Sergel Directed by Belle Rollins

The familiar characters, the small town setting, and the major racial themes of Harper Lee’s classic novel are compressed in this faithful adaptation of the novel to the stage. Scout is as spunky, warm-hearted, and curious about life in the stage play as she is in the novel and film, and Atticus Finch is just as passionate an advocate for justice. Tom Robinson is as Job-like, and the Ewell family as hate-filled and ignorant as we expect them to be. The supporting cast, with their asides and small town gossip, convey the social setting of the 1930s. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior—to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. *General audiences
