FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Umbrella presents TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Concord, MA (March 2018) - The Umbrella invites community members to their performance Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, adapted by Christopher Sergel and directed by Michelle Aguillon. Performances will be held at The Umbrella Annex, located at 57 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner in Concord, MA, starting March 22 and running through April 8. Tickets at theumbrellaarts.org.
Set in the Deep South, this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel sees racial injustice envelop a small-town community. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, and his feisty daughter, Scout - a young girl on the cusp of adulthood - brings new hope to a neighborhood in turmoil.
The Umbrella's Director of Performing Arts, Brian Boruta says, "TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is one of the most recognizable classic novels ever written and this stage adaptation allows Harper Lee’s lyrical text to soar. Returning to the idea of visiting race and class through multiple points of view, we see here a chance to approach the season through the lens of a child as we re-experience the loss of innocence and coming of age through Scout’s eyes."
The Umbrella will wrap up their 2017/2018 Season with Alfred Uhry's PARADE, running May 4-20, 2018.
