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

We left during the intermission...we just weren't entertained by the content of the story + the smoking during the show was hitting our sinuses. Having said that, personally ~ I would have stayed for the rest of the production but was outnumbered by the people I was with.
They're gonna party like it's 1982! It's the dawn of a new era: the Reagan era. And the Counter-Culture's kids are coming of age in New York City. Hilarious, insightful and poignant, This Is Our Youth shows 48 hours in the lives of three kids caught in the moment between adolescence and adulthood when the ideals and values inherited from their parents will guide them toward self-discovery or push them to self-destruction.
By Kenneth Lonergan (screenwriter of the films "Analyze This" and "You Can Count on Me")
Directed by Francis Gercke
