To Kill a Mockingbird  
Oak Park Festival Theatre To Kill a Mockingbird
 
Although excitement, mystery and controversy surround the imminent release of Harper Lee's new book -- her first in six decades -- one thing is certain: It will never replace To Kill a Mockingbird. For few perspectives on American society have been as perceptive or as poignant as that of young Scout Finch, the heroine of Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel (Winesburg, Ohio), this moving play follows Scout's journey as her father Atticus defends Tom Robinson, a black man framed for a crime he did not commit. As the trial progresses, Scout and her brother Jem see their community divided over issues of justice and racism. See this stirring portrayal of both racial and family relations at Chicago's Oak Park Festival Theatre in Austin Gardens.
