TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD Opens Tonight at the Meroney

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD Opens Tonight at the Meroney

Set in Depression-era Maycomb, Alabama in 1935, young Scout Finch lives with her father, Atticus Finch, an attorney, and her older brother Jem.

When Tom Robinson, a black man, is accused of raping a white woman, Mayella, Atticus is asked to represent him and accepts, knowing that that decision will likely make him and his family unpopular in town. Meanwhile Scout, Jem and another friend forge a bond over one of the neighborhood legends -Boo Radley. Jem and Scout have never seen Boo, though they have heard that he is held captive in a house down the street.

As the trial moves ahead, the town's emotions run high, mobs gather and relationships are strained. This dramatization of the touching classic tale is described as a meaningful work of art.
