The Little Theatre of Walla Walla will stage the drama "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee (dramatized by Christopher Sergel) with performances March 29, 30, April 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14.
Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and brother, Jem, are being raised by their widower father, Atticus, and by their strong-minded housekeeper named Calpurnia. Set in 1935, this play examines the social issues of this time period as Atticus is appointed as the lawyer to defend a young black man accused of a crime against a white woman.
A literature classic, this dramatization incorporates an older Jean Louise (Scout) as a narrator reflecting back on the event that shaped her childhood.
