Press Release: To Kill A Mockingbird
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, the stage adaptation based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, comes to the historic Thomaston Opera House! Landmark Community Theatre is pleased to present the literary classic, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, on its main stage. Under the direction of Lucia Dressel, who last year directed the historical drama, The Diary of Anne Frank, is pleased to lend her talents to Harper Lee’s celebrated novel. The play chronicles the social and racial inequalities of the rural south in 1935 as told through the eyes of a young girl.
Jean Louise Finch, or better known as Scout, portrayed by LCT newcomer Bobbie Doherty (Stonington), is a precocious young tomboy, whose innocence and blindness to the faults of her neighbors are what drive the plot of this tumultuous drama. Her eyes become opened when her father, the heroic Atticus Finch, played by Josiah Rowe (North Haven), takes on a controversial case defending a man of color who is wrongly accused of rape. Fighting racism and injustice, Atticus teaches Scout and her brother, Jem, to always stand up for what’s right. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is an amazing story of tolerance and morality. Please be advised this play contains strong language and situations.
