To Kill A Mockingbird makes another appearance in London following its run at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2014. This time audiences can pick up theatre tickets for a run of shows at the Barbican Theatre as it heads back to the capital as part of a UK tour.
Once again, Robert Lawrence Leonard plays Atticus Finch, having played the part when the show originally appeared at the Open Air Theatre in 2013, and he will provide that iconic moral voice that has captured the minds of audiences on the page, screen and stage.
The story focuses on a small Southern American town in the 1930s, with a grown up Scout Finch recounting her younger days alongside her brother and her father, Atticus. Through her eyes we see her father stand up for justice and morality as an African American man unfairly accused of rape goes on trial. With Atticus as his lawyer he must be defended from racism and prejudice during turbulent economic times.
The novel by Harper Lee is one of the best of the 20th century and the story is also well known as a 1962 film with Gregory Peck as Atticus and Mary Badham as the young Scout. As such it is a story that has stood the test of time and remains a powerful and memorable piece in every incarnation. The book earned the Pulitzer Prize whilst the film won three Academy Awards.
This time around Robert Lawrence Leonard plays Atticus and he does so following his appearance in the role at the Open Air Theatre in 2013. The acclaimed American actor has starred in a wealth of productions on the other side of the Atlantic, including The Invention Of Love in New York, which earned him a Tony Award in 2001. His other credits include The Iceman Cometh, Born Yesterday and Long Day’s Journey Into Night, among others, whilst he has also appeared on the big screen in the likes of Dead Poets Society and Ground Control.
In a year that also sees Lyndsey Turner direct Benedict Cumberbatch at the Barbican in Shakespeare’s classic Hamlet, To Kill A Mockingbird appears in front of audiences from Wednesday 24th June 2015.
