Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, published in 1960, explores racial injustice in America and features one of the most iconic characters in literary history – small-town lawyer Atticus Finch – famously portrayed on screen by Gregory Peck.
Produced by Sonia Friedman, the play is directed by Barlett Sher with set design by Miriam Buether, costume design by Ann Roth, sound design by Scott Lehrer, lighting by Jennifer Tipton, and an original score by Adam Guettel.
Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel premiered to critical acclaim on Broadway in December 2018 starring Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom, Dumb and Dumber) and more recently Ed Harris (Apollo 13, The Truman Show, West World) where it has broken box-office records. The UK premiere has been repeatedly delayed by Covid but is due to open on 10 March 2022.
To Kill A Mockingbird is booking from 10 March 2022 until 13 August 2022 at the Gielgud Theatre, London. Tickets from £30 with best availability from May 2022.
