Ed Harris stars on broadway

Get ready... Greg Kinnear heads to To Kill A Mockingbird to star as Atticus Finch this April!

Harper Lee's iconic novel has arrived on the Broadway stage for the first time ever, in a brand new adaptation by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network). One of American literature's greatest works, Mockingbird tells the story of a black man accused of rape in pre-civil rights era Alabama and the noble lawyer who defends him. Starring Ed Harris as Atticus Finch!

A portrait of simmering racial tension in a small southern town, To Kill a Mockingbird is considered one of the greatest American novels ever written. In today's current climate, its themes of prejudice and inequality seem just as prescient, while the book's steadfast lawyer Atticus Finch remains the gold-standard for noble heroes.

A Fresh PERSPECTIVE

While adapting such a story is a daunting task, Sorkin has promised not to be too overly reverent and will be adding in new dialogue and fleshing out some scenes which were only passingly mentioned in the text. Producer Scott Rudin has also assured fans that Mockingbird's controversial follow-up Go Set a Watchman, which cast a wholly different light on Atticus Finch, is not being looked to for inspiration.

What is To Kill A Mockingbird About?

Told through the eyes of 13-year-old Scout, Mockingbird is set in the pre-civil rights era Deep South of the 1930s. When local black man Tom Robinson is accused of raping a white girl, Scout's lawyer father Atticus Finch takes on the case, determined to try and give Tom a fair trial. With his decision to defend Tom, Atticus finds himself ostracised from the community, and the lives of his family put into danger. As the trial approaches, Atticus must choose whether to buckle under the mounting pressure or to stand his ground and fight for what is right.
