Critic and Audience Comments
“The secret ingredient in Orlando Shakespeare’s recipe is the staging of Thomas Ouellette, which is exceptional in every way...when you put To Kill a Mockingbird onstage in a production ascompletely involving and persuasive as this one, even the most casehardened cynic will surely be tempted to suppose, if only for a couple of happy hours, that the world might just be that simple—and hopeful.” - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
“I think my heart broke a little during Orlando Shakespeare Theater's resonant and relevant production of To Kill a Mockingbird.…. the play is about much more than race relations, and the Shakes' production doesn't forget that… As young Scout, Kennedy Joy Foristall has the belligerent curiosity of a 6-year-old down pat... Warren Kelley gives Atticus not only the appropriate gravitas, but a tinge of sadness as well — a sadness for the injustice he knows his children are likely to witness.” - Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
To Kill a Mockingbird is set in the Depression-era South. The play includes racist language, mild violence, and discussions of rape. The play is best suited for ages 12 and up. Click here for more specific parental guidelines.
