A legendary show

The To Kill a Mockingbird Broadway play perfectly reflects the culture of racism of the then America. Through Atticus Finch, the protagonist, you will explore the true meaning of integrity. Finch is a small-town lawyer and stands for the helpless. He is among those people who wanted to make his country better.

The story is set in 1935; Atticus Finch is a widowed father, living with his children (Scout and Jem) in Maycomb, Alabama. Racial tension is high in this region and it is suffering from the aftermath of the Great Depression. Amidst all that, Scout is able to live an untroubled life, free from the problems of race. But, everything changes when she watches her father stand up for Tom Robinson, an innocent man on the verge of hearing a death sentence only because of racial partiality. This causes the racist community to launch attacks on the accused, as well as the family of the defender. How will Atticus pull Tom out of this mess?

Scout realises that not everything the society shows as true is real facts. With her elder brother, Jem and father Atticus’ guidance, she discovers that growing up also means to do what is right, no matter the cost. Watch To Kill a Mockingbird Broadway play, a story which became an icon of morality, childhood innocence, and love. It serves as a depiction of the old days of slavery and its removal from America.
