To Kill A Mockingbird tells the extraordinary and unforgettable story of life in the American Deep South through the inquiring eyes of a child.

Brother and sister Jem and Scout Finch are growing up during the 1930s depression but their idyllic childhood innocence is shattered with the realisation that bigotry and prejudice rule in their small town of Maycomb, Alabama.  When their father, Atticus defends a young black man, falsely accused of raping a white woman, the whole family becomes the target of gossip and abuse.

Set in America’s Deep South at a time when racial tensions were at an all time high, the challenging and uncomfortable issues this classic addresses, are as relevant today as they were when the book was first written, more than 50 years ago.

Duncan Preston recreates his role as the iconic lawyer Atticus Finch in this award-winning production.  Duncan is probably best known for his recent appearance in Emmerdale, as well as the hugely popular TV series dinnerladies and Surgical Spirit and his starring role in the award-winning musical Acorn Antiques with Victoria Wood.
