When we first meet the English Department of Finch Park Collegiate, rumours are flying about a teacher-student relationship. Two days later, Mr. Foster has been removed from the school. With an 11-person ensemble and razor-sharp dialogue, these teachers cast judgement on one another, make their own difficult choices, and share their worldview. They play out the themes of To Kill A Mockingbird, while considering issues of power and authority in their classrooms. Part of my series The Graduation Plays, Mockingbird reveals what happens when innocence meets authority, and explores the grey area between right and wrong.
