Thus Spoke the Mockingbird
by Joanie McElroy
Directed by Jason Caldwell
Set in Monroeville, Alabama, this play seeks to explore the life and work of the elusive
author Harper Lee who penned the famous novel To Kill a Mockingbird over 50 years
ago. After rocketing to the top of best-selling fiction novels, many had hoped more was to
come from this new author. However, the years passed and she became quiet; she is now
quieter than ever. This play seeks to study the little girl from a sleepy town in south
Alabama who made a big noise internationally. After her novel’s explosion, the resonation
continued while the person who fired its canon retreated. The rest she left to her audience
whose precious gift she has entrusted. We would do well to honor that gift and its giver.
This play hopes to do that. Special Pricing.
