“To Kill a Mockingbird” opens Friday evening, March 16th and runs for two weeks at the Brock Performing Center in historic downtown Mocksville. The play has been adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name written by Harper Lee and published in 1960.
The play runs over the next 2 weekends with performances scheduled each Friday, Saturday at 7 PM and each Sunday at 3 PM.
Directed by Mollye Ann Maxner from the North Carolina School of the Arts, the cast includes some new faces and some old friends from the Brock Players.
A southern gothic novel set in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama during the great depression, “To Kill a Mockingbird” is recognized as a classic in modern American literature. While dealing with the serious issues of racism, rape, and lost innocence, the novel is play is renowned for its warmth and humor.
One critic explains the novel’s impact by writing, “In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism.”
Under the direction of Ms. Maxner, the Brock Players production brings the characters to life, striking a balance between the unjust consequences of racism and hate and the values of courage and integrity.
Tickets are available at the Brock Performing Arts Center box office and tickets will be available at the ticket office before each performance.
