The Richmond Players August 2022 performance of "To Kill a Mockingbird" has come to a close, and was an amazing success! Richmond Players would like to pass on a huge thankyou to our phenomenal cast and crew, all those that gave up their time to help behind the scenes, and most importantly to all those that came along to see the show!
Please read below some of the amazing feedback from both reviewers and the community alike...
"Mockingbird is an American classic and Richmond Players Inc execute with well crafted precision under the Direction of Matthew Barry and his creative team. I came out of this show with a lump in my throat, reflecting on how even today almost 100 years later this is still sadly relevant. Theatre like this production moves people and that is quite simply magic."
- The 4th Wall Reviews
"Atticus Finch draws his children and the townspeople together with wisdom and gentle advice. Barry finds this in measured reactions, kindly tones and the dignified reasoning of a man who observes, thinks deeply and is innately fair."
- Stage Whispers
ABOUT THE SHOW
This exciting play is based on the best-selling and much-loved author Harper Lee.
It is a gritty and heart-warming story of 1930’s Alabama, and follows Atticus Finch’s attempts to prove the innocence of Tom Robinson, a black man who has been wrongly accused of raping a white woman in 1930s Alabama, told through the eyes of his young daughter, Scout. The plot explores themes of racism and the innocence and the power of youth.
Inspired by Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird features one of literature’s towering symbols of integrity and righteousness in the character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s own father. The character of Scout, based on Lee herself, has come to define youthful innocence—and its inevitable loss—for generation after generation of readers around the world.
