Storming onto Broadway in late 2018 Aaron Sorkin's acclaimed adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird has finally opened in London, starring Rafe Spall as Atticus Finch. Adapted from the classic Harper Lee novel the production wowed Broadway's critics, earning itself nine 2019 Tony Award nominations. Bartlett Sher, who garnered the nomination for Best Direction of a Play, returns to direct this West End run.

A portrait of simmering racial tensions in a small southern town, To Kill a Mockingbird is considered one of the greatest American novels ever written. In today's climate, its themes of prejudice and inequality seem just as prescient, while the book's steadfast lawyer Atticus Finch remains the gold standard for noble heroes.


Told through the eyes of 13-year-old Scout, Mockingbird is set in the pre-civil rights era Deep South of the 1930s. When local black man Tom Robinson is accused of raping a white girl, Scout's lawyer father Atticus Finch takes on the case, determined to try and give Tom a fair trial. With his decision to defend Tom, Atticus finds himself ostracised from the community, and the lives of his family put into danger. As the trial approaches, Atticus must choose whether to buckle under the mounting pressure or to stand his ground and fight for what is right.

Profound inspiring TIMELY

A production handled with the care and fervor it so deserves

There isn't anything more harrowing than the past existing in the present - like a ghost wandering your home feeling entitled to a space that you inhabit.
