Come to Monroeville to see this adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird for an experience you will never forget! Each spring, a cast of local actors under the direction of the Mockingbird Company present “The Play” in the same courtroom where Miss Lee watched her father practice law. The restored Monroe County Courthouse and its Otha lee Biggs amphitheater offer the opportunity to experience To Kill A Mockingbird in the author’s hometown - the place which inspired Maycomb. The opportunity to see this timeless work happens each Spring in Monroeville and the location makes all the difference in the world!
Don’t just take our word for it…
“After seeing 3 different versions of To Kill a Mockingbird in 3 different places with 3 different casts, I can sincerely and unequivocally say that the BEST by far is the production in Monroeville, Alabama. This beautifully performed play adheres most closely to the true spirit and message of hope and inspiration of Harper Lee’s novel as shown in the quiet yet powerful portrayal of the strength and dignity of Atticus Finch as he tries consistently to impart his values of equality, respect and justice to his children and thus, really, to each and every one of us. As you leave the courthouse after the play, you do so with a smile on your face and hope in your heart, something sorely needed in all times, especially ours of today.”
