All rise for Harper Lee’s timeless courtroom drama, now in session in the West End.
Harper Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird. To date, the American novelist's story of racial injustice has sold over 45 million copies. The popular novel follows lawyer Atticus Finch’s court case, told through the eyes of Scout, Atticus’s daughter. In the To Kill a Mockingbird play, the three young characters – Scout, Jem, and Dill – guide the action.
Aaron Sorkin adapts the To Kill A Mockingbird play, paired with Bartlett Sher’s visionary direction. The multi-award-winning screenwriter and playwright's work includes The West Wing, The Social Network, and The Trial of the Chicago 7. His version utilises the courtroom tension to show snapshots of an America past, the nation today, and give insight into the future of the United States.
To Kill a Mockingbird London shows started with Rafe Spall as Atticus Finch. Since then, Richard Coyle and Matthew Modine have portrayed the iconic literary role on stage. They join Broadway actors Jeff Daniels, Ed Harris, and Greg Kinnear as actors who have played the notorious lawyer.
To Kill a Mockingbird picked up six Olivier nominations: Best New Play, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (for David Moorst), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Pamela Nomvete), Best Actor (Rafe Spall), Best Director (Bartlett Sher), Best Set Design (Miriam Buether).
