In the Deep South, a racial injustice envelops a small-town community. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth while his feisty daughter Scout – a girl on the cusp of adulthood – brings new hope to a neighbourhood in turmoil.

Capturing the warmth and poignancy of Lee’s 20th-century classic – a universal story about the corruption of innocence – the production premiered in Regent's Park in 2013. The award-winning revival now comes to the Barbican at the conclusion of its UK tour, with popular American screen and stage actor Leonard reprising the role of Finch exclusively for the Barbican.

“The chief glory of the novel is neither its plot nor its prose, powerful as they are, but its spirit. ”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Timothy Sheader’s production would be five-star but for a slight over-sprinkling of sugar... Strong acting. ”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“A reverential but satisfying production which exudes a love for the book on which it is based. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Much-feted production... is as filled with charm and character as Harper Lee’s novel... Succeeds in making us care profoundly. ”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Robert Sean Leonard brings just the right blend of gravity and humanity to the saintly lawyer Atticus Finch. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“It's reverent but never staid, clear but never over-simplified. If you missed it first time round, don't forego the opportunity.”

Theo Bosanquet (Time Out, What's On Stage)

“Has lost none of its power to captivate and disturb... Remarkable performances.. It’s probably a good idea to take a hanky. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Sergel’s adaptation explores the child’s perspective with some brilliance... A powerfully moving night. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)
