Almost a year after their home on Main Street shuttered in the unfortunate collapse of the Davenport Hotel building, The Mockingbird flies once more to present Harper Lee’s classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird opens in a sleepy Alabama town in the midst of the Great Depression, where Scout and her brother, Jem, live with their widowed father, Atticus Finch.
Reminiscent of a bygone era, the play immerses us in a simpler time as the children play outside in the summer, act out stories and muse about their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. The facade of the seemingly peaceful town begins to crack when a young black man is accused of a terrible crime.

Driven by an unshakeable moral conviction, local lawyer Atticus defends the man in a trial that sends violent waves through the community. Timeless and lingering, this hard-hitting work explores prejudice, compassion and the courage to do what is right.

Directed by husband and wife team Tristan Tapscott and Savannah Strandin, “To Kill a Mockingbird” features James Driscoll as Atticus Finch and Sophia Kilburg as Scout.
