Harper Lee’s seminal literary classic first shocked, challenged, and inspired the nation in 1960, sweeping across critic and reader circles with unprecedented acclaim. It was awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize the next year, cementing its place as one of America’s greatest achievements in literature as well as an exemplary text for the country’s legal professions.

To Kill a Mockingbird was adapted for the silver screen by Horton Foote under the direction of Robert Mulligan, launching in cinemas in 1962 to both critical and box office success. The film claimed three Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay, and was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress in 1995.

In 1990, its first stage adaptation, written by Christopher Sergel, debuted in Monroeville, Alabama, where it continues to be the city’s annual May performance tradition. A new production, written by Aaron Sorkin, would later find Broadway lights in 2018 with an official opening at the Shubert Theatre on December 13. The run was immediately lauded and deemed a contender come award season, clinching one win each from the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards. Before the pandemic suspension in 2020, the play made history in Madison Square Garden with a free exhibition in front of 18,000 NYC public school students — the largest single-day attendance record for a play in the world. 

And in 2022, the production transferred to West End London at the Gielgud Theatre, receiving five nominations from the Laurence Olivier Awards.

Review for The Maryland Theatre Guide by Lynne Menefee:

“Masterfully directed by Bartlett Sher, this ‘Mockingbird’ is a breathtaking and totally captivating production on every level, with a fantastic cast supported by the exemplary work of the creative team. The play has taken the book apart and structurally reassembled the events to great effect. The play packs a powerful, emotional punch even though we already know the terrible, practically inevitable outcome. But there is also humor, tenderness, and joy.”
