To Kill a Mockingbird runs March 1-17 at City Theatre in St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG - A classic of modern American literature comes to the City Theatre Stage.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Christopher Sergel from the novel by Harper Lee opens March 1 and runs through the March 17.
Guest Director Erica Sutherlin brings a fresh, candid and gripping approach to the play adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel and Oscar winning movie.
The City Theatre production is a rich tapestry that frankly addresses the issues of race and rape in depression era Alabama. It explores social injustice and the destruction of innocence, yet it does so with warmth, compassion and humor and gives the viewer one of the most enduring fictional images of racial heroism, Atticus Finch.
Seen through the eyes of Finchís 10-year-old daughter Scout, this play will move you and inspire you. The themes are a cry for tolerance and a cry for justice that are as relevant now as they were when the book was published in 1960.
Show time is 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday with Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.
