To Kill a Mockingbird 2012 – Iowa State University Theatre Production

by Harper Lee/adapted by Christopher Sergel

“Before I can live with other folks, I’ve got to live with myself.”

Atticus Finch, a lawyer who is a widower, tries to raise his two young children to have a code of honorable behavior within the social fabric of a small town in Alabama in the mid 1930’s. When a young black man is unfairly accused of accosting a white woman and Atticus serves as his lawyer, serious issues of racial inequality violently surface within the community. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize.
