Repertory East Playhouse presents Christopher Sergel's stage adaptation of Harper Lee's classic 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Depression-era lawyer Atticus Finch struggles against racial prejudice in the rural South as he tries to exonerate a black man falsely accused of rape. Much of the story derives from the perspective of Finch's children, Jem and Scout, who witness the moral and societal issues that plague their town. This timeless tale of the innocence of childhood and the shock of growing up provides a poignant look at justice and the human spirit, as told through the eyes of a young girl learning the mysteries and realities of adulthood. To Kill a Mockingbird remains a stirring portrayal of both racial and family relations of its time that continues to resonate today. Learn More

The show was fantastic. We took the whole family and we all were affected - very intense, quality actors, well scripted. Tried to get tickets to go again but it was sold out!

The cast did an extraordinary job! Very well done. Very emotional! They really researched their parts and even stayed after the show to answer questions that the audience had.

This was a terrific show! The entire cast was wonderful, no exception. The set really gave you the feeling of the cramped quarters. The actors even stayed in character and stayed in the attic during the intermission! Much better than we expected. We'll definitely seek out more shows at the Reperatory East Playhouse.
