INTERNATIONAL bestseller To Kill A Mockingbird will be touring to the Theatre Royal Bath next week.

This much-loved and widely-read Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee celebrated its 50th year in 2010 and remains as pertinent today, exploring issues of race and morality through the inquiring eyes of a child, Scout Finch.

Brother and sister, Jem and Scout Finch, are growing up during the 1930s depression but their idyllic childhood is shattered with the realisation that bigotry and prejudice rule in their small town.

When their lawyer father, Atticus, defends a young black man falsely accused of raping a white woman, the whole family becomes the target of gossip and abuse.

The story of the ill-fated Tom Robinson unfolds as Scout and Jem take their first steps towards adulthood, coming face-to-face with the hypocrisy and prejudice that surrounds them.

This gripping stage adaptation by Christopher Sergel has a cast of 20 talented actors.

To Kill a Mockingbird is appearing at the Theatre Royal Bath from Monday until April 23.

Tickets, priced £16.50-32.50, are available from the box office on 01225 448844 or
