Scout prepared for Rep

A critically-acclaimed adaptation of Harper Lee’s masterpiece, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ returns to the stage following a sell-out run at Regent’s Park with a visit to Birmingham Rep Theatre.

The story is told by six-year-old tomboy Jean Louise Finch, nicknamed Scout, and based in the 1930s in the small Alabama town of Maycomb. Scout lives with her elder brother Jem, her father Atticus, and their housekeeper, stern but kind-hearted Calpurnia, who comes closest to taking the place of Scout’s dead mother. Scout and Jem befriend Dill, a small boy who comes to visit and stay with his aunt every summer. The two major themes in the novel are judgment and justice, as Scout and her brother get to learn some crucial lessons about judging others through the character of Boo Radley, a cryptic and solitary neighbour.

The show runs from Monday 25 February to Saturday 2 March, with tickets priced at £15 – call 0121 236 4455 or visit birmingham-rep.co.uk for details.
