To Kill a Mockingbird

  • Thursday 18th - Friday 19th October

Carlow Little Theatre return to the George Bernard Shaw Theatre this October with an ambitious stage production of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning, classic of modern American literature ‘To Kill A Mockingbird' (adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel).

The place is Maycomb, Alabama, in the Great Depression years of the 1930s. Momentous events unfold through the eyes of ten-year-old Scout Finch, growing up in a close-knit neighbourhood with her older brother Jem and their summertime visitor Dill. When their father Atticus Finch, a well-respected lawyer, mounts a vigorous and compelling case for the defence of Tom Robinson, a poor black man accused of the rape of a young white girl, an idyllic world of childhood is changed forever. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath comes a searching examination of freedom, justice, honesty, and hypocrisy. A compelling, deeply moving story told with warmth and humour, 'To Kill A Mockingbird' is an allegory for the universal truths of human sensibility that will resonate with everyone.

Directed and Produced by Paddy Behan
With lighting by Ann Nolan
