Platte Valley Players are excited to bring Harper Lee’s classic story to the Armory October 13-21.

Scout, a young girl in a quiet southern town, is about to experience dramatic events that will affect the rest of her life. She and brother, Jem, are being raised by their widower father, Atticus, and by their strong-minded housekeeper named Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the sensitively revealed people of her small town but, from the start, there’s a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. Set in 1935, this play illustrates the social issues of this time period as the black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout’s father. In her youthful innocence, she does not know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn’t understand this either. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father. Atticus, a lawyer, explains that he is defending a young negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he is doing it. “Because if I didn’t,” her father replies, “I couldn’t hold my head up.” When she asks why Atticus would take on such a hopeless fight, he replies, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason not to try.” He goes on to prepare Scout for the trouble to come. “We’re fighting our friends. But remember this—no matter how bitter things get, they’re still our friends.”  This dramatization of the touching classic tale is a meaningful work of art.
