To Kill a Mockingbird, according to TheatreWorks, "is the story of tomboy Scout Finch and her older brother Jem as they come face to face with harsh realities in the Deep South. When a black man is accused on little evidence of assaulting a white woman, Scout’s father, lawyer Atticus Finch, stands for justice in the shadow of overwhelming racism in an utterly engaging tale of heartache and joy, innocence and integrity."
The production has scenic design by Andrea Bechert, costume design by Allison Connor, lighting design by Steve Mannshardt and sound design by Cliff Caruthers. Kimily Conkle serves as dialect coach, and Richard Lane is fight director.
