A great American classic and one of the most beloved coming-of-age stories ever written, Harper Lee's moving tale of life in rural Alabama during the Depression is filled with heartache and joy, conflict and conciliation. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Scout, a six-year-old tomboy, grows up quickly as her father, Atticus Finch, defends a legal battle that reveals fired of prejudice burning through the South where black and white, rich and poor, young and old struggle to find common ground and survive.
To Kill A Mockingbird is the first production in ATC's AMERICA PLAYS! Celebrating Great American Stories initiative. This ambitious multi-year series of American classics will include special public forums, readings, education programs and state-wide community-based events. To Kill A Mockingbird, adapted by Christopher Sergel, is a co-production with Kansas City Repertory Theatre.
