The Mugford Street Players present:
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Adapted by Christopher Sergel, from the novel by Harper Lee | March 29 to April 14
Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird opens in a sleepy Alabama town in the midst of the Great Depression, where Scout and her brother, Jem, live with their widowed father, Atticus Finch. Reminiscent of a bygone era, the play immerses us in a simpler time as the children play outside in the summer, act out stories and muse about their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. The facade of the seemingly peaceful town begins to crack when a young black man is accused of a terrible crime. Driven by an unshakeable moral conviction, local lawyer Atticus defends the man in a trial that sends violent waves through the community. Timeless and lingering, this hard-hitting play explores prejudice, compassion and the courage to do what is right.

Faith welcomes the new adventure and the opportunity to reunite with her boyfriend Ahmed and to recreate their romance from a summer together in Amsterdam. Jake, entering his senior year in high school, resents being made to leave his friends back home and that his sister is dating Ahmed.
