The story remains very little changed from the book and follows the narrative of Atticus Finch a noble lawyer and believer in the goodness of all people, living in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama during the Depression. Against the violent opinions of the rest of his town so strongly divided by race, Atticus takes on the defense of an innocent young black man accused of the rape of a white woman. The protagonist of the story is Atticus’ young daughter, Scout, who interprets the events of the story through the lens of a child yet is unsure about people’s motivations for kindness and cruelty. With the support of wise Atticus, she learns about the hard ways of people, but also that there is no excuse to not keep trying.
To Kill a Mockingbird thrumming with praise from every corner of the art scene. Rolling Stone hailed the small deviations the play makes from the books. These allowed several of the characters to express more emotion than in the book. Critic Peter Travers opined, “Jeff Daniels embodies a more human Atticus Finch. [This adaptation] lets black characters finally speak for themselves.”
Newsday lauded it: “‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is of a high standard: beautifully designed and lit, well acted, and with just the right balance of pathos, humor and outrage,” while the Hollywood Reporter claimed that is “A transfixing act of theatrical storytelling that makes us hang on every word as if experiencing the story for the first time.”
