Mockingbird

Adapted by Julie Jensen from the book of the same name by Kathryn Erskine
September 30 – October 16, 2016
NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER

Maybe you know someone with Asperger Syndrome (AS). Maybe you have a child or student on the spectrum. Or perhaps you’d like to learn more about the inner lives of those who struggle with this developmental disability. No matter how much or little you know about Asperger’s, you’ll be forever moved by the touching story of Caitlin, an unforgettable character who first appeared in the National Book Award-winning young adult novel. This play unfolds as Caitlin is coping with the loss of her brother Devon, who was killed in a school shooting. Her unique experience of grief and search for closure helps her move beyond her old black-and-white world and into a life of deeper complexity and greater understanding. A must-see for anyone who teaches or cares about someone on the spectrum.

Recommended for 5th grade & up
