The Lyric is happy to welcome the National Youth Theatre for three performances in the Studio Theatre, the home of the Lyric’s work with young people.

‘You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.’

It’s the 1930s. America. A racially divided southern town in Alabama. In Harper Lee’s award-winning classic To Kill A Mockingbird, Lawyer Atticus Finch takes us on a pursuit for justice whilst his daughter Scout uncovers local truths. Performed by the award-winning National Youth Theatre Rep Company.  Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel and directed by Meghan Doyle, recipient of the Bryan Forbes Assistant Director Bursary.

‘Some of the finest young talent in this country’
