Synopsis

Caitlin is an 11-year-old girl on the autism spectrum. Not all things make sense to her. Emotions are mysterious and voices are almost always too loud. Suddenly, she must grapple with the unthinkable: a mass shooting has taken her brother away. He was the one person who helped her cope. Now she is alone with her grieving father and a cacophony of children at school. She struggles to understand empathy, what facial expressions mean and why a drawing might have more than one color. We see the world from Caitlin’s point of view. We struggle as she does. We also take comfort in the times when she finds a friend, draws a multicolored mockingbird and can finally cry for her brother.

Customer Reviews

"We had a fantastic time producing this show. Mockingbird (Touring Version) was very well received from audiences and is a perfect length. This show is very flexible and doesn’t require any intricate lighting or sets which makes it a perfect show for companies who have a smaller budget. I highly recommend you produce this show!"
Review by Michael Curdt, Leaping Lizards Performing Arts Studio, St. Louis, Mo.
"This was such a meaningful and moving production. We performed a cutting for a national conference, and the audience was deeply moved. "
Review by Victoria Susan Miller, Blue Springs City Theatre, Blue Springs, Mo.
"What a wonderful play! Audiences raved at our production. Mark Brown captured Dickens so much that it's a wonder Dickens himself didn't give him advanced notes!"
Review by Robert M Lasky, Jr., MTM Players, New Egypt, N.J.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Give the cast ownership of the show. Our cast made decisions from ticket prices to set/lighting design. This ownership, combined with the story/characters caused them to be bonded unlike any cast I have ever worked with. Also, cast autistic actors when possible. Their insight will be invaluable to you."
Tip by Trinity Lee Bird, The Sauk, Quincy, Mich.
