To Kill A Mockingbird tickets

All rise for this spellbinding adaptation

After generating huge critical acclaim on Broadway, Aaron Sorkin’s landmark adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird opens in the West End, starring Matthew Modine as Atticus Finch.

Based on Harper Lee’s best-selling novel, To Kill a Mockingbird is set in the mid-century American South and based on Lee’s own childhood in Alabama. Told through the eyes of Scout Finch, the story follows her father Atticus Finch, whose career as a lawyer sees him defending a black man accused of rape against a white woman.

To Kill a Mockingbird is adapted for the stage by Aaron Sorkin, who is best known for his razor-sharp screenplays, including the Academy Award-winning The Social Network and Steve Jobs. It is directed by Bartlett Sher, who previously won a Tony Award for South Pacific.

The Broadway production shattered box office records, becoming the highest-grossing American play in history, and the West End production is sure to follow suit. Don't miss To Kill a Mockingbird tickets to witness this classic tale of racism and injustice, which is as timely as it is timeless, brought vividly to life at the Gielgud Theatre.

Fabulous performance of To Kill a Mockingbird. Wonderful actors and set and you could hear a pin drop at times during the drama. The time rushed by and I was so engrossed I did not look at my watch once. Long standing ovation much deserved.

Based on the internationally bestselling 1960 novel by Harper Lee, this production is told through the eyes of Scout, Jem and Dill. Set in 1930s Alabama, Tom Robinson, a black, young, disabled, family man, is falsely accused of a violent crime against Mayella Ewell, a poorly educated, white, teenage woman. Enter Atticus Finch, Tom’s lawyer, who believes ‘all people should be given fair treatment’. The three narrators take us scene by scene as we watch the racist, angry mob mentality of the townsfolk reach fever pitch, where they dismiss the clear evidence proving Tom’s innocence. This is a hard-hitting play, showing the prejudices and difficulties faced by black people at the hands of the dismissive and privileged white folk, while exposing the three narrators to undiluted racism. The cast are all outstanding in the delivery of their roles, and thoroughly deserving of the thunderous ovation; especially Patrick O’Kane as the main antagonist, and Richard Coyle as the man determined to see justice done. For me, the highest praise has to be showered upon the three narrators: Harry making a triumphant professional stage debut, and David M. and Gwyneth bringing a joyful energy to the inquisitive trio. (Scout addressing the audience at the start of the second act was a fun use of breaking down the fourth wall). I have to give a nod to the ‘town drunk’ who our three narrators discovered only drunk Coca Cola in a paper bag, with two straws, so the townsfolk would leave him alone. The staging is wonderfully effective, switching primarily between the Finch’s house to inside the courtroom. But there are occasions when set pieces are moved across the wooden floor it can drown out some of the dialogue.

As you would expect if you have read the book. A play about a time gone by and the beginning of social justice (in my opinion) A bit drawn out with some dodgy accents in places. Overall poignant and worth a watch

Tremendous!! Rafe Spall is outstanding as are Harry Redding (who is making his west end debut) as Jem and Geyneth Keyworth as Scout. As relevant today as it was when it was written. A fabulous adaptation and well worth the wait! Congratulations to all the team / this is going to be a long run!
