To Kill A Mockingbird
Los Angeles Pierce College Theatre's 2014-2015 Season concludes in May with Christopher Sergel's stage adaptation of Harper Lee's beloved, Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill A Mockingbird. Performances begin Friday, May 1 and continue through Sunday, May 10. This is the inaugural production on the Mainstage of Pierce College's newly-renovated Performing Arts Center.
Set in Alabama during the Great Depression, momentous events unfold through the eyes of 10 year old Scout, growing up in a close-knit neighborhood with her older brother Jem and their summertime visitor Dill. When their father Atticus Finch, a well-respected lawyer, mounts a vigorous and compelling case for the defense of Tom Robinson, a black man accused of the rape of a young white girl, an idyllic world of childhood is changed forever. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath comes a searching examination of freedom, justice, honesty and hypocrisy. To Kill A Mockingbird is a timeless, compelling and deeply moving story told with warmth and humor.
