Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a story that has lost none of it’s poignancy, led by some brilliantly talented actors.

Don't see it if you find it challenging to understand the southern American dialect this plays out in or if the subject is too heavy for you to deal with.

Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a well-staged and well-acted play that's entertaining and moves along swiftly.

Don't see it if you are a stickler for Lee's book or Peck's movie (Sorkin made significant changes to the text and characters). Read more

All rise for a magnificent Mockingbird. Sheer emotion and moral force make this Broadway adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel about race, community and family a powerfully uplifting theatrical event.

Breathing fresh life into one of the most famous characters of all time is no small achievement: this ambivalent Atticus is a huge achievement for both Sorkin and Spall.

But this production, however quietly, offers a thorough indictment of the American justice system...One imagines the late Lee would approve.

This utterly riveting and revelatory staging of one of the best-known, but also most dustily familiar, of 20th-century American literary classics...Sorkin’s account argues the case for the core complexity of To Kill a Mockingbird as never before.

Hats off to Aaron Sorkin. While the official title may be Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, this captivating drama is very much Sorkin’s take on a story that has become embedded in the consciousness of generations of readers.

The result, in Bartlett Sher's smooth, beautifully modulated production which arrives in London with Rafe Spall as Atticus, is an engaging and intelligently acted affair...

London Theatre
April 4th, 2022

...Harper Lee’s story of racial injustice in 1930s Alabama should resonate no less galvanically here, not least as refashioned by playwright Aaron Sorkin and director Bartlett Sher, and with a tremendous performance from Rafe Spall...

The Stage (UK)
March 31st, 2022

Worth the drama? Worth the wait? The jury’s out...Sorkin’s approach is the kind you can swoon or sicken at. It assumes that we’re all a bit older than when we first encountered the book, a bit more able to hold on to complexity.
