Atticus Finch portrayed by Richard Clark

Atticus Finch steps from the pages of “To Kill A Mockingbird” and brings to life the tragedy and triumph of Harper Lee’s classic novel. As a loving father, compassionate friend and uncompromising attorney, Atticus represents the divine spark in the human spirit as he leads a cast of other unlikely heroes in this story. The courtroom drama, the poignant interactions between father and children, the harsh realities of bigotry and hatred blend to make this a compelling theatrical event. The time is 1930’s Alabama but the enduring truth is for now and always. Atticus Finch is portrayed by Richard Clark, an actor with over thirty years of experience in New England regional theater, New York Theater and television.
