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

"Mockingbird is a great story that provides a powerful message to the audience. In this show, the character's relationships and character development are super critical to the overall story. As far as the technical elements go, less is more is what we found beneficial to our production. This show really allows the actors to develop good character study practices and character relations."
Review by Emily Hernandez, Beckendorff JH Theatre, Katy, Texas
"Mockingbird was an EXCELLENT experience for both our cast and crew AND our audiences. The production and story pushed our lead actors and full ensemble in NEW ways that helped us grow, with the complexity of characters for leads and the needed skills to portray a range of emotions, range of ages, and freeze and show scenes in slow motion for our ensemble.
Our audiences, including several hundred middle school students, felt the impact of the message to "walk in someone else's shoes" before judging him or her.
This is just a BEAUTIFUL and MOVING production that really made an impact on our local community.
"
Review by James McCulloch, Mariner Drama, Marine City, Mich.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Be prepared for challenges for leads with complexity of characters. For ensemble, we ran many exercises that worked on slow motion and portraying a range of full facial expressions.
Keep the set simple to allow the show to move quickly from scene to scene.

Tip by James McCulloch, Mariner Drama, Marine City, Mich.
