Scout, a six-year old girl, lives in a quiet southern town. She and her brother, Jem, are being raised by their widowed father, Atticus, and by a strong-minded housekeeper, Calpurnia. Scout is fascinated with the people of her small town especially the reclusive Boo Radley, but there’s a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here.
The black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout’s father and she doesn’t know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn’t understand this either. The bewildered girl turns to her father who explains that he’s defending a young Negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime.
The trial sparks a series of dramatic events that lead Scout and Jem into harm’s way and result in a surprising rescue. A beloved play for generations.
