Perhaps no perspective on American society has been as perceptive as that of young Scout Finch, the heroine of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel (Winesburg, Ohio), this moving play follows Scout as she watches her father, Atticus, defend Tom Robinson, a black man framed for a crime he did not commit. As the trial progresses, Scout and her brother Jem discover that both evil and goodness can turn up in the unlikeliest of places. Learn More

The play stars a very poor and elderly woman who is trying to visit her childhood home in Bountiful, despite her son and daughter in law forbiding it. They describe her efforts as "running away". The story and the acting, particularly the old woman, is superb.
Horton Foote’s tender and moving American classic about finding your way home. Aging Carrie Watts desperately wants to return to her hometown of Bountiful, Texas while she still has energy and spirit. Her son would rather bury the past. And her daughter-in-law can’t understand why she would want to leave the city. But despite their protests, Mrs. Watts yearns to plunge her hands into the dirt, to hear the birds sing, to breathe the country air -- and to prove that she is more than the fragile old woman people see when they look at her!
