I have to admit to being disappointed in this production of my favourite book. I found the minimalist set distracting & unconvincing and many of the characters one-dimensional. The 'Jean Louse, stand up - your father's passing' impact was completely lost due to the staging of that particular moment. However, the court case itself was well staged & gripping, as was the moment when Boo Radley appeared in the nick of time to save Jem & Scout from Bob Ewell's murderous intentions. - Janet Kronberg

The actors generally failed to portray the emotion and drama that the play demands. I sensed little if any tension and Preston did not convince me that he felt the case was that important. Okay I accept that Gregory Peck is a difficult act to follow, but I have seen better performances of this great story.
I do agree with Veronia Crowley's comments regarding the set, back projection and problems with audibility. - Nigel Hall
