This 'Mockingbird' will speak to you

You likely haven't experienced "To Kill a Mockingbird" as it's being presented at Weathervane Playhouse in Newark.

Past, present and future collide in this production of the layered, touching story.

It's been required reading in schools for decades -- and Weathervane's commendable production, which runs through Saturday, is required viewing.

In a wise move, director Kevin Connell sits some audience members where the actors playing jurors would sit in the trial of Tom Robinson, the black, basically one-armed, honorable man accused of raping a white woman. It's as though they're forced to see things from the jurors' point of view, misguided though it may be.
