Mockingbird. Adapted by Julie Jensen. Based upon the book by Kathryn Erksine. Winner of the National Book Award. This play was commissioned by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and was first produced at the Kennedy Center during the 2014-2015 season. Produced by special arrangement with GURMAN AGENCY LLC, New York, NY. March 24 – April 9, 2017. Todd Wehr Theater, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 929 N. Water Street. Caitlin sees the world in black and white. Colors are messy, and recess is chaotic. As an 11-year-old on the autism spectrum, Caitlin used to rely on her older brother to help make sense of a world that doesn’t fit her definitions, but now that he’s gone, she’s all on her own. With the support of her advisor, father, and a new reading buddy, Caitlin begins to understand how to embrace the “messiness” of emotions. Soaring with heart and humor, discover how the perseverance of one girl can change a community – and how black and white can always be complemented by a kaleidoscope of colors. For families with young people ages 10 – 17 and up.
(No 1 p.m. performance on Saturday, March 25.)
