"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." Atticus Finch, Act I.

Narrator Jean Louise Finch, the grown up Scout, returns us to her childhood in the deep South of the 1930's, a time permeated with racial and class conflict. Through Scout's memories we relive the innocence of her youth as it crashes headlong into the shocking reality of the adults around her. A black man has been accused of a terrible crime and Scout watches as her father, lawyer Atticus Finch, courageously takes a stand for what is right.

A poignant literary classic, To Kill A Mockingbird will play the Quirk Theatre on April 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 at 7pm, April 6 & 13 at 2pm and School Matinees on April 9 & 15 at 10am. Recommended for audiences 12+.
