Dramatized by Christopher Sergel. From the book by Harper Lee.

Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed people of her small town but, from the start, there's a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. Set in 1935, this play illustrates the social issues of this time period as the black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout's father. In her youthful innocence, she does not know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn't understand this either. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father.

Atticus, a lawyer, explains that he is defending a young negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he is doing it. "Because if I didn't," her father replies, "I couldn't hold my head up." When she asks why Atticus would take on such a hopeless fight, he replies, "Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason not to try." He goes on to prepare Scout for the trouble to come. "We're fighting our friends. But remember this — no matter how bitter things get, they're still our friends."

Things do get bitter, and Atticus fights his legal battle with a result that is part defeat, part triumph. As Atticus comes out of the courthouse, the deeply moved town minister tells Scout, "Stand up. Your father's passing!" This dramatization of the touching classic tale is a meaningful work of art.

To Kill A Mockingbird is presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing.

Produced by Jane Landes, Eric Raymond and Maryellen Raymond
