The First National Tour of the history-making production of To Kill a Mockingbird, Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin’s new play has begun.

Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher and based on Harper Lee’s classic novel, the play opened its multi-year tour across North America last night April 6, at the Citizens Bank Opera House in Boston, MA. It will play in venues across America through July 2023.

Set in Alabama in 1934, Harper Lee’s enduring story of racial injustice and childhood innocence centers on one of the most venerated characters in American literature, small-town lawyer Atticus Finch. The cast of characters includes Atticus’s daughter Scout, her brother Jem, their housekeeper and caretaker, Calpurnia, their visiting friend Dill, and a mysterious neighbor, the reclusive Arthur “Boo” Radley. The other indelible residents of Maycomb, Alabama, are Bob Ewell, Tom Robinson, prosecutor Horace Gilmer, Judge Taylor and Mayella Ewell.
