Seeking Equity actors for the national tour, Broadway future replacements, and understudies. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD tells a story of racial injustice and childhood innocence. Set during the Depression in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, small town lawyer Atticus Finch defends an African-American man, Tom Robinson, who is falsely accused of rape, before an all-white jury. ATTICUS FINCH (Mid 40 - 50’s) Caucasian. A small-town lawyer in Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930’s. Highly intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate, with a strong moral compass and a dry sense of humor. Father to Scout and Jem, he cares for his children deeply. JEAN MARIE “SCOUT” FINCH (Adult 18+ to play child) Caucasian. Southern. Smart, insightful, independent, she’s forthright and has a strong sense of justice. Articulate and an original thinker. Looks up to her father. Believes in the goodness of people. JEM FINCH (Adult 18+ to play child) Caucasian. Southern. Scout’s brother, older by four years. Very much the older sibling, he’s decisive, bold, quick to act, opinionated and brave. Idolizes his father.
CALPURNIA (40’s-50’s) African-American. Southern. Works as the housekeeper for the Finches. Smart, strong, outspoken, political, with a strong moral center. Protective of Scout and Jem DILL (Adult 18+ to play child) Caucasian. Southern. Dill is staying with his Aunt Rachel in Maycomb while his mother is otherwise engaged. Outgoing, talkative, sensitive, though rather lonely; he is befriended by Jem and Scout. JUDGE TAYLOR (60’s) Caucasian. Male, Southern. Maycomb’s judge. Courtly and learned, he’s very much in charge of his courtroom. Thoughtful, shrewd, formidable with a dry and sharp wit. Doesn’t suffer fools. TOM ROBINSON (20’S) African-American. Southern. A field hand, hardworking, serious and ethical, falsely accused of rape by Mayella Ewell. BOB EWELL (40’s) Caucasian. Southern. Angry, alcoholic, prone to violence. Very smart. A dangerous man, who feels cheated by the world. MAYELLA EWELL (Early 20’s). Caucasian. Southern. Daughter of Bob Ewell. Uneducated. Takes care of her many younger siblings, traumatized and volatile. She falsely accuses Tom Robinson of rape. HORACE GILMER (30’s) Caucasian. Southern. Prosecuting attorney with the soul of a politician; ambitious and shrewd. MRS. DUBOSE (60’s+) Caucasian. Southern. An irascible and unhappy woman, who speaks cruelly to Scout and Jem. MISS STEPHANIE/ DILL’S MOTHER: Miss Stephanie (30’S) Caucasian. Southern. The town gossip. Funny, highly opinionated. Role doubles with: Dill’s Mother (30’S) Caucasian. Attractive. Growing weary and impatient from her search for a new husband. SHERIFF HECK TATE (40’s – Early 50’s) Caucasian. Southern. Maycomb’s town sheriff. Man of the law. He knows the conflicts of the town and has to figure out how to navigate them. Compassionate. LINK DEAS (40’S-50’S). Caucasian. Southern. Tom Robinson’s employer, a cotton farmer. Has somewhat removed himself socially from the people of Maycomb, who suspect Deas is an alcoholic. Stands up for Tom Robinson and is revealed to be a man of unlikely and surprising substance. BOO RADLEY (Mid 30’s-Mid 40’s) Caucasian. Southern. He’s retreated from the world, is never seen by anyone in Maycomb and has become the subject of much speculation and wild rumors. When he appears, he barely speaks a word. He has a haunted quality, but a profoundly kind spirit. Physically imposing. Not verbal, extremely sensitive. DR. REYNOLDS (40’S-50’S) Caucasian. Southern. Male. The town doctor, he’s been treating the Finch children since birth. Trustworthy, sensible, caring. MR. CUNNINGHAM (40’s) Caucasian. Southern. A farmer. Uneducated, impoverished.
