I feel priviledged to have seen this moving adaptation of the original book. Rafe Spaul captivating and sensitive performance as Atticus Finch demonstrates the vulnerability and determination of the man. At times I was moved to tears. The cast appear to be in harmony and the staging is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this play.

The acting was superb. It was a powerful play and took the audience’s breath away but also brought some laughs, tears and all the big feels. It was incredible and we would recommend it to everyone!

5.0 star rating George from London, England


I absolutely loved this play. All the actors were excellent , the stage was cleverly adapted and I think it captured the books essence very well. Would highly recommend it, especially as we got cheap tickets on todaytix.

5.0 star rating Terry Farley from London, England


A emotional roller coaster of a evening . The cast as a whole was perfect and the script modernised by reflecting Trumps ‘ left behind ‘ voters echoing sadly eternal racism of the south .

5.0 star rating Zoe Woodward from Brighton


Everyone is entitled to their opinion but frankly the comments in the previous review are laughable in their absurdity. Did she really need to see 12 people sitting in the jury? We all knew and in fact it was referenced during the play that they were all white people! The whole performance was captivating throughout and the occasional quips that made us laugh out loud provided a welcome relief to an otherwise very intense subject matter, rightly so. Each and every performance from the main parts to the small were effortlessly carried out and the stage sets were ingenious. A standing ovation from the whole audience said it all really.

5.0 star rating Varda Tully from London, England


So powerful. Superb acting. Masterful script. Wonderful sets and stage direction. So many audible intakes of breath as the audience immersed themselves completely. We were held captive from start to finish. The standing ovation and applause tells me I am not alone in my appreciation. This is one to see. Unforgettable.

Waited 2 years to see this and wow, it was worth the wait. The positive reviews are spot on. All the cast shine, as does Aaron Sorkin’s reworking. The staging is ingenious. Felt emotionally drained by the end and some of the audience were in tears. It really is that good.
