Critically acclaimed play that won best revival accolade
THE critically acclaimed production of To Kill a Mockingbird comes to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking, following its successful run at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. Directed by Timothy Sheader, To Kill a Mockingbird proves its success across every art form, with the 1960 novel awarded the Pulitzer Prize, followed by the film adaptation in 1962, which won three Oscars. Winner of the Whatsonstage Award 2014 for Best Play Revival, Harper Lee’s classic has been adapted for stage by Christopher Sergel. Set in the Deep South, Lee’s story sees racial injustice envelop a small-town community. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth and his feisty daughter, Scout – a young girl on the cusp of adulthood – brings a new hope to a neighbourhood in turmoil. Daniel Betts stars as Atticus Finch. An accomplished actor, his previous stage credits include Skylight (National Theatre), The Winter’s Tale (Royal Shakespeare Company) and The King’s Speech (Wyndham’s Theatre). Christopher Akrill stars as Boo Radley. He began his career as a dancer and has worked with companies including Northern Ballet and Hannover State Ballet. Theatre credits include Dr Dee (Manchester International Festival) and Waiting for Godot (Munich). Zackary Momoh plays Tom Robinson. Recently appearing on stage at the National Theatre in From Morning to Midnight and Sir Nicholas Hytner’s critically acclaimed production of Othello, his other stage credits include The Bay (Young Vic). Reprising his role for 2014, Phil King composed and performed the critically acclaimed score for the 2013 production at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. Jemima Bennett, Ava Potter and Rosie Boore will share the role of Scout while Harry Bennett, Arthur Franks and Billy Price will share the role of Jem. The role of Dill Harris will be shared by Leo Heller, Connor Brundish and Milo Panni.
