mockingbird-web“You never really understand a person until you climb into his skin and walk around in it”

Nine-year old Scout’s world is turned upside down when her widowed father, lawyer Atticus Finch, defends a young black man accused of raping a white woman.

As tensions erupt and neighbours take sides in the life-and-death case, it is Scout’s clear-eyed courage in the face of ignorance and bigotry that ultimately brings hope to a damaged community.

Set against the backdrop of entrenched prejudices and deep inequality in the segregated world of 1930s Depression-era Alabama, this acclaimed adaptation brings to life the compassion, humanity and childish wonder of Harper Lee’s much-loved Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

★★★★  Daily Sydney

“It is impossible to not love To Kill A Mockingbird.” SuzyGoesSee

“New Theatre speaks the words Australia needs to hear … As far as stage presentations of To Kill a Mockingbird go, you’ll rarely see one as fine as this” Lisa Thatcher

“Vividly brought to life [with] warmth and sincerity” Sydney Arts Guide

“This stage adaptation is a crowd-pleaser sure to satisfy those who hold the novel close to our hearts.” Time Out

“Support our local talent. They are brilliant!” OverACuppaCoffee

“A toasty and warm rendition of a classic … the ensemble cast were enchanting” Sh*t on Your Play 

“Amusing, engaging and very affecting … Exactly how far we’ve come in the last fifty years regarding racial bigotry is an open question. But theatre like this leads us to continue to ask that question. And to ask where else our blindness might lie.” Veronica Kaye
