To Kill A Mockingbird
Good News for Lovers of the Classics
Despite hundreds of new productions premiering across the stages of the country, some productions still become sold-out no matter how many times they have been performed before. These classics are not only critically acclaimed but also very close to our hearts. To Kill A Mockingbird, the Tony-nominated play, is one such product that has won millions of hearts since it opened in London. The play, adapted from the legendary novel of the same name, was one of the most celebrated classics of American literature.
First published in 1960, the story is still widely read and appreciated across the English-speaking world. It has also been adapted into a major motion picture in 1962 starring Gregory Peck and won the Academy Award in several categories. Further, the story was adapted into a play by legendary director Aaron Sorkin in 2018. The production lived up to the expectation and became a fan-favourite. Following its roaring success in its previous run, the production is coming back to Shubert Theatre, London. To Kill A Mockingbird tickets will soon be available for their next session.
A Powerful Story
The play is adapted from Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-winning novel To Kill A Mockingbird. It is the story of Atticus Finch, a lawyer and single father, and his two children Scout and Jim. They live in an old, quaint town called Maycomb. However, their lives come to a fix when Atticus Finch, a man of integrity and character, is asked to represent Tom Robinson, a black man facing legal trials for rape charges. While the entire town is in favour of convicting the man for the alleged crime, Atticus realizes the overt tone of racial discrimination underlying the trial and decides to fight against it. His fight, therefore, was not only to defend Tom in a court of law. Rather, it became a struggle to fight against systemic racism that has been crippling the society from within.
The whole story is narrated from the perspective of Scout, Atticus’s daughter. This further adds an edge to the beauty of the narration, as the audience is faced with intricate subjects like racial tension and morality from a child’s innocent viewpoint.

A Star-studded Cast
The soul of the play lies in its message. And the actors brought the spirit out ever so wonderfully through their flawless craft. If you want to witness the poignant story come to life through marvellous acting, then you better get hold of the To Kill A Mockingbird tickets. Celia Keenan-Bolger, the American actress and singer, plays the role of Finch—Atticus’ young daughter and the narrator of the play.

The new production will be featuring Greg Kinnear, another academy award nominee, in the role of Atticus Finch. So, don’t miss your chance to watch this masterpiece.
