Opening March 24th through April 8th, The Providence Players presents Christopher Sergel’s stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Mockingbird is a gripping and heart-wrenching tale of coming-of-age in the South. Set in a depression-era town poisoned by prejudice, lawyer Atticus Finch struggles 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.

Director Beth Whitehead says:To Kill A Mockingbird is not only a powerful story about a town seeking a hero, but also about family, hope, truth and compassion. It is a love story of Scout, her dad Atticus Finch, her brother and her search for her place in the world. It is a story that reminds us of how important integrity is in each of our lives.”
