Inspired by Lee’s own Alabama upbringing, To Kill a Mockingbird is told through the eyes of Scout Finch, a young girl whose father, lawyer Atticus Finch, has been tasked with defending a black man against rape accusations. Amongst racism and bigotry in the American South, To Kill a Mockingbird challenges audiences through a prescient tale of the loss of innocence, with some of literature’s greatest characters at its heart.

He is joined by a cast including Tony Award-nominated actresses Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Cherry Orchard, The Glass Menagerie) as Scout Finch, and LaTanya Richardson Jackson (A Raisin in the Sun, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone).
