To Kill A Mockingbird

Gielgud Theatre, London, W1V 8AR
  • TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD comes to the West End at Gielgud Theatre

    Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning American classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD comes to the West End from Broadway in a new adaptation by Aaron Sorkin, directed by Bartlett Sher.

    Inspired by Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD features one of literature’s towering symbols of integrity and righteousness in the character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s own father. The character of Scout, based on herself, has come to define youthful innocence – and its inevitable loss – for generation after generation of readers around the world.

    Published in 1960, Harper Lee’s debut novel TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD was an immediate and astonishing success. It won the Pulitzer Prize and quickly became a global phenomenon, with more than 50 million copies in print to date. Considered one of the great classics of modern literature, the novel has never been out of print since its original publication.

    Please be advised that this production contains racially explicit language, themes and content and references to sexual abuse and violence. There will be brief gunfire audio in the performance.

    The racially explicit language refers to frequent use of the “n-word” alongside other strong racist language. The show also contains imagery of “the clan” which involves a group of actors dressed in hoods (two of whom walk down the stalls aisles in the auditorium before arriving on stage), representing the lynch mob – some are carrying rifles, chains or rope.

    Please note that both the following storylines are retold verbally and are therefore not live action:

    References to sexual abuse and violence refer to the indication that one character, Bob Ewell, sexually assaults his daughter, Mayella Ewell. The violence listed in the trigger warning notably refers to a character retelling the story of the mother of his dead child, who, as a result of her loss, completed suicide and “opened her wrists with a piece of broken glass”.
