A Mockingbird seven miles from Fall River
March 20, 2013 by James
A performance of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee – the recipient of numerous awards since it was initially published in 1960, including the Pulitzer Prize – is viewable in the area next week.
At Sandywoods Center for the Arts, located in Tiverton, Rhode Island, The Boston New Repertory Theatre will perform the classic tale on Monday, March 25.
Today, it is hard to find a librarian who does not regard the book as one of the finest narratives written in the 20th century, and who does not own a printing company quality, hard-back copy of his or her own.
The New Repertory’s roving program, The Classic Repertory Company (CRC), brings expert adaptations of timeless literary masterpieces to towns and villages throughout the Fall River region and all of New England. The CRC highlights the artistic skills of some of Boston’s finest professional actors and performers.
The exceptional actors involved will illuminate Harper Lee’s bildungsroman tale of racial prejudice, social injustice, the meaning of integrity and the struggles of the Deep South, as seen through eyes of six-year-old Jean Louise “Scout” Finch.
Sandywoods Farm Arts Community is located in rural Tiverton, and is home to about 50 families. It is also comprised of the Sandywoods Gallery, the Community Garden and Orchard, and the Sandywoods Center of the Arts, which offers an eclectic variety of events during the year.
Tickets are available at the door or online. Prices are $15 for adults and $10 for children. The show will begin promptly at 7:00 pm, with the performance clocking about 90 minutes.
