Plainfield East High School
will present the American literary classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Set in Alabama during the Great Depression, “To Kill a Mockingbird” follows the journey of Jem and Scout Finch, whose father has been appointed to defend Tom Robinson, a man framed for a crime he did not commit.
As the trial progresses, Jem and Scout witness their community in a tense tug of war between justice and racism. This timeless study of human relations compels audiences to honestly explore America’s past and human beings’ moral responsibility to each other.
Harper Lee found instant fame after “To Kill a Mockingbird” was published in 1960. The novel was showered with literary awards, and recently Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater staged it and received critical acclaim.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 10, 11 and 12, 2011; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, November 13, 2011.
