The production, which opened in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, will have run for over a year when it completes its run. The 32 strong current cast, led by Matthew Modine as Atticus Finch, will continue with the run.
Matthew Modine continues his role as Atticus Finch with Harry Attwell (Mr. Cunningham/Boo Radley), Helen Belbin (Miss Stephanie/Dill’s Mother), Niall Buggy (Judge Taylor), Cheryl Burniston, Colin R Campbell (Mr Roscoe/Dr Reynolds), Jack Crumlin, Alan Drake, Max Ferguson, Phillipa Flynn, John Hastings (Bailiff), Rebecca Hayes (Mayella Ewell), Simon Hepworth (Link Deas), Ellis Howard (Dill Harris), Jason Hughes (Bob Ewell), Niamh James, Julie Legrand (Mrs Dubose), Nigel Lister, Tom Mannion (Sheriff Heck Tate), Sam Mitchell (Jem Finch), Anna Munden (Scout Finch), Tiwai Muza, Cecilia Noble (Calpurnia), Itoya Osagiede, Jude Owusu (Tom Robinson), Oyin Oyija, David Sturzaker (Horace Gilmer), George Telfer, Natasha Williams (Mrs Dubose’s Maid), and Candida Caldicot (on organ), Ciyo Brown and Jack Benjamin (on guitar).
Set in Maycomb, Alabama in 1934, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD has provided American literature with some of its most indelible characters: lawyer Atticus Finch, the tragically wronged Tom Robinson, Atticus’ daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker Calpurnia and the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley. For the past six decades and for every generation, this story, its characters and portrait of small-town America have helped to, and continue to, inspire conversation and change.
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is running the All Rise ticket scheme in an exclusive partnership with TodayTix, offering £15 seats for every performance across the run.
