To Kill a MockingBirdThis February, come out and see the first performance of the new year! Seton Hall Theatre is performing To Kill A Mockingbird, directed by Professor Deirdre Yates in the Theatre in the Round.

Atticus Finch is a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930s. He agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. The play’s powerful message of racial tolerance fills the corners of an intimate setting as it chronicles the lives of three young children and a widowed father forever changed by an act of injustice in the small, fictional town. Published in 1960, Lee’s indelible work would go on to win a coveted Pulitzer Prize.

Performances include actors, Ben Yates as Atticus Finch, Jalen Hemphill as Tom Robinson, Elise Pfail as Jean Louise Finch, Christine Byrne as Mayella Ewell, and PJ Argento as Bob Ewell.

Performed in the Theatre-in-the-Round on the SHU campus on Feb. 27, 28, March 1 at 8 p.m. and March 2 at 2 p.m.
