To Kill A Mockingbird play London 

Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird is coming to London after it celebrated one year on Broadway in November 2019. The show is the most successful American play in Broadway history, following its highly successful sold-out run of shows and nine Tony nominations, winning Best Actress in a Featured Role for Celia Keenan-Bolger’s portrayal of Scout Finch. 

Sorkin is an Oscar, Emmy, BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning screenwriter and producer with a glittering track record on both stage and screen. His screenplay for The Social Network took home an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA, while his work on the acclaimed NBC series The West Wing earned him five Emmys. He’s also won a Golden Globe for his screenplay for Steve Jobs and has been nominated for Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars for Moneyball, Charlie Wilson’s War and Molly’s Game.

Directing Sorkin’s script for To Kill A Mockingbird is acclaimed director Bartlett Sher. Sher is the multi-award-winning director of the Lincoln Center Theatre in New York, a post he has held for over a decade. His critically acclaimed stage productions include the Tony Award-winning South Pacific as well as Oslo, My Fair Lady and Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown

Rafe Spall takes on the lead role as Atticus Finch, stepping into the shoes of Jeff Daniels and Ed Harris. Spall has just completed the fearless one-person play Death Of England in 2020 for the Royal National Theatre. He is primarily known for his film work, including Life Of Pi, One Day, The Big Short, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and Prometheus. Spall also has extensive theatre credits including Hedda Gabler, Alaska, The Knight Of The Burning Pestle, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, Constellations and Betrayal, in which he made his Broadway debut in 2013.

To Kill A Mockingbird Story 

Set in Alabama in 1934, the story of To Kill A Mockingbird centres round one of the most venerated characters in American literature, small-town lawyer Atticus Finch. Harper Lee’s award-winning novel is an enduring story of childhood innocence and racial injustice and prejudice. It follows widower Atticus, along with his daughter Scout and son Jem, as they navigate life during the Great Depression in the American South. Additional characters appearing in the story include the family’s housekeeper and caretaker Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, and their mysterious neighbour the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley, amongst others. Lee’s story is both a coming-of-age narrative and a dark drama where good and evil collide.

Harper Lee’s iconic novel has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide, with 2020 marking the 60-year anniversary of its publication in 1960.
