Theatre Arlington will present one of the most beloved and timeless stories in American literature. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, dramatized by Christopher Sergel, is just as relevant today as it was during 1930s, the time of the play.

Set in the mythical small town of Maycomb, Alabama during the Depression, this coming-of-age story is brilliantly told through the memories of Jean Louise Finch, the grown-up eight year old “Scout.” Innocent and inquisitive, Scout’s world in this small southern town is abruptly altered as her lawyer father, Atticus defends an African-American man wrongly accused of a despicable crime. She is confused as to why the black community is now so fond of her father, yet some of her white friends are suddenly hostile towards him.

This poignant drama takes us on a journey with Scout over three years as adult mysteries are revealed and she learns the only way to recognize the truth is to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
