To Kill a Mockingbird tells the tale of Scout, a young girl in a small southern town about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. The play recounts how a local trial about controversial racial issues can stir a town into a frenzy. Scout must understand what it means to stand up for what is right as her father defends a young Negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. The family faces hostility throughout the trial. The play offers a twist as the audience becomes the jury overseeing the young man's trial. This meaningful work of art is meant to challenge one's own beliefs in justice.
