Trigger Warning. To Kill A Mockingbird is set in the pre-civil rights era Deep South of the 1930s. It is told through the eyes of 13-year-old Scout. The story unfolds as local black man Tom Robinson faces accusations of raping a white girl. Scout’s father, the principled lawyer Atticus Finch, takes on the case with the determination to secure a fair trial for Tom.
As Atticus decides to defend Tom, he becomes an outcast in the community, and the safety of his family hangs in the balance. With the trial on the horizon, Atticus confronts the challenging choice of yielding to the mounting pressure or steadfastly standing his ground, fighting for justice and what is morally right. The gripping narrative navigates the complexities of morality, racial tensions, and the courage to uphold one’s principles.

If you’re not sure of what to expect from this show, take Roma Torre for NY1’s word for it. In their review, it said: “When I heard that Aaron Sorkin’s stage adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird featured changes to Harper Lee’s beloved story, I thought how dare they mess with a masterpiece. The kids’ roles played by adults! The Atticus Finch character flawed! Well, it turns out, far from killing the essence of the great work, this excellent company achieved the unimaginable: they enhanced it.”
