To Kill a Mockingbird
Playwright: Christopher Sergel
Author: Harper Lee
Producer: Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company in assoc with West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Touring Consortium and Watershed Productions
This most beloved and widely read Pulitzer Prize-winner tells the extraordinary and unforgettable story of life in the American Deep South.
Brother and sister Jem and Scout Finch are growing up during the 1930s depression but their idyllic childhood innocence is shattered with the realisation that bigotry and prejudice rule in their small town of Maycomb, Alabama.
Acclaimed television and stage actor Duncan Preston plays Atticus Finch, an honourable and liberal lawyer defending a young black man accused of raping a white woman.
Harper Lee's classic is as evocative of its age as it is timelessly relevant; a tale of moral duty, humanity and respect, observed with brilliant clarity through the restless and enquiring eyes of a child.
