In the heat of summer during the Great Depression, Scout Finch, a spirited young tomboy learns the hard truths of prejudice and privilege in a small town in Alabama. Celebrating fifty years since the original publication of this stunning American masterpiece, TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theater of Silicon Valley, presents To Kill A Mockingbird, dramatized by Christopher Sergel and based on the novel by Harper Lee. When a black man is accused on little evidence of assaulting a white woman, small town lawyer and Scout's father Atticus Finch stands for justice in the shadow of overwhelming racism in an utterly engaging tale of heartache and joy, innocence and integrity. With TheatreWorks Founding Artistic Director Robert Kelley at the helm, To Kill A Mockingbird finds the search for family, justice, and common ground the defining test of the American character. Enduring, compassionate, and unforgettable, this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic resonates across the decades, inevitably finding its place in the human heart.
