The opening night of To Kill a Mockingbird performed by the Denver Center Theatre Company (DCTC) is tonight Friday, September 30th and it will run throughout the month of October. The production, adapted by Christopher Sergel is about Atticus Finch, an attorney in the segregated South of the 1930s, courageously defending a black man accused of rape. It examines loss of innocence and moral integrity in a time of fear.
October is Bullying Prevention Awareness month. Bullying is behavior that intentionally involves anything from teasing to social exclusion and involves an imbalance of power or strength. To Kill a Mockingbird (a play based upon the novel by Harper Lee) is a story which involves racial injustice and the destruction of innocence and is the perfect play for families, (who want to open a dialogue about bullying) to see together.
DCTC’s age recommendations: Ages 6 and up and they encourage families to attend together to discuss the adult themes, which include racism and rape.
