All rise for the final performance of To Kill a Mockingbird. The Aaron Sorkin play, based on Harper Lee’s novel of the same name, will play its final performance at the Gielgud Theatre on 20 May. Book To Kill a Mockingbird tickets on London Theatre.

Set in 1930s small-town Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird follows lawyer Atticus Finch and his family as he defends the wrongfully accused Tom Robinson. Matthew Modine currently plays Atticus Finch, and will continue with performances to 20 May. Bartlett Sher directs.

In a To Kill a Mockingbird review on London Theatre, our critic said: “That nearly 90 years have passed between the era in which the play is set and today, with arguably very little having fundamentally changed, may give sorrowful pause: how are we to achieve that change which Atticus so movingly anticipates? As a richly emotional evening closes on the rending hymn “Joy Cometh in the Morning,” all one can and must do is look toward a better tomorrow and to those new and more just mornings that, with any luck, lie in wait.”
