An American Classic, To Kill a Mockingbird was first published in 1960. The novel by Harper Lee was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has since become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are loosely based on the author’s observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old. Christopher Sergel’s stage adaptation of the novel has become the definitive treatment of the original work and is widely performed all over the world. The story is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. The narrator’s father, Atticus Finch, has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explains its impact by writing, “In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird was probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism.” Sergel’s adaptation preserves each of the novel’s endearing and powerful elements and the result is riveting stage drama.
