AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - The timeless tale of compassion, justice, and prejudice is making its way to town as Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning sensation, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” takes center stage in an eagerly anticipated production.
Playwright and Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin will showcase his live interpretation of one of Alabama’s most notable novels for two days only.
Tuesday, February 13, and Wednesday, February 14, the Gogue Performing Arts Center will open its doors to one of the most critically acclaimed plays.
In an interview with BroadwaySF in September 2022, Sorkin expressed how important it was to craft each role to demonstrate the shift in social consciousness.
“These are issues which, when I was being taught the book in seventh or eighth grade when Richard [Thomas] (Atticus Finch) was being taught the book in seventh or eighth grade, we did not talk about. We just talked about what was in the book,” Sorkin said.
This theatrical masterpiece has achieved the remarkable feat of selling out every performance.
The success of “Mockingbird” extends beyond its cultural virtue; it is a testament to the power of storytelling to establish a connection with the audience.
Sorkin’s masterpiece speaks to timeless, universal truths, making that one of the reasons why tickets for this production are in high demand.
