Harper Lee’s 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning play is unquestionably an American classic. Both heartwarming and chilling, this story of prejudice, racism, courage and human value is familiar to many as an Academy Award-winning film. Brought to life onstage by the exemplary Montana Rep, it gains additional depth, to create for audiences an unforgettable artistic and human experience.
