Set in Alabama in 1934, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird follows Atticus Finch, a small-town lawyer who represents a black man in a court case, with events unfolding through the eyes of Atticus’ daughter, Scout.
The stage adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird is written by Aaron Sorkin, who said about the play’s return: “We’ve been waiting more than a year for Mockingbird—and all of Broadway—to come back, so this is a very happy announcement. I’m… excited for the electricity that Jeff, Celia and the whole cast will be bringing to the Shubert Theatre.”
In a review of To Kill A Mockingbird for New York Theatre Guide, Mark Shenton said: “Sorkin and his director Bartlett Sher stage it primarily as a scorching courtroom drama, folding it seamlessly with scenes from Finch's home life as his two worlds collide. Given the rise of white nationalism… a lot of this feels very current. But it also makes for gripping, seriously absorbing theatre”.
