Christopher Sergel’s powerful stage adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.  Set in America’s Deep South in the 1930’s, To Kill a Mockingbird explores the racial injustice that envelops a small town. The author skillfully portrays the magic and innocence of a child’s world while weaving a poignant tale that explores the timeless themes of prejudice, love, courage, faith and redemption.
 
A black man, Tom Robinson, is accused of raping a white woman. With courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, and his daughter Scout – a young girl on the cusp of adulthood – brings new hope to a community in turmoil.
 
Don’t miss this poignant dramatization of Harper Lee’s touching classic story that is one of our culture’s most meaningful works!
 
Directed by Michael Wilkinson.
