About the Play
To Kill a Mockingbird, based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-winning novel and the Academy-Award-winning film, is set in a small town in Macomb county Alabama in the 1930s. The townspeople are seen through the eyes of Jean-Louise, a young tomboy nicknamed “Scout.” The play follows Scout, her older brother Jem and best friend Dill as they try to make sense of the adult world, a world that turns from carefree to ominous and threatening when Scout's father is asked to defend a black man falsely accused of assaulting a white woman.
The children’s’ perspective presents a fresh vision of the adult world, often humorous, but also heartbreaking in its exposure of prejudices in a time of deep racial discrimination.
