All rise! You’re summoned to the courtroom for Aaron Sorkin’s riveting, Tony Award-winning stage adaptation of the seminal novel.
Discover the Harper Lee novel in a new light. London Theatre praised To Kill a Mockingbird on stage, commenting that the play "captures the changing zeitgeist and a necessarily heightened awareness of racism and societal injustice."
To Kill a Mockingbird earned six Olivier nominations: Best New Play, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (for David Moorst), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Pamela Nomvete), Best Actor (Rafe Spall), Best Director (Bartlett Sher), Best Set Design (Miriam Buether).
In Sorkin’s acclaimed To Kill a Mockingbird play, the climactic court case frames the action, as we flash back to see the events which led up to Tom’s trial – including Scout and Jem’s meeting with the visiting Dill, and the trio’s fascination with their mysterious neighbour Boo Radley; Atticus’s discussions with their black cook, Calpurnia; and their dealings with the prejudiced Bob Ewell, whose daughter Mayella accuses Tom.

Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book is one of the great American novels. Since its publication in 1960, schools across the world continue to incorporate the story into the national curriculum.
The tale is inspired by her own childhood in 1930s rural Alabama; like Atticus, Lee’s father was an attorney who defended two black men. Now, the iconic story plays out in the hit To Kill a Mockingbird London production. Join Scout and Jem as they watch their father Atticus Finch defend an innocent African-American man, Tom Robinson, who has been falsely accused of rape.
The show made its West End debut at the Gielgud Theatre in 2022 with Rafe Spall as Atticus Finch, with Richard Coyle and Matthew Modine taking over the role. Bartlett Sher directs To Kill a Mockingbird in London.
