Great reviews for this today. The point about the reading from books is I think to reinforce that it's an absolute classic of a story which pretty much everyone knows, and the fact that most of the cast slip in and out of narration and character chimes with it being such a familiar story that we all feel we own it. Worked for me.

We saw the production last night and we thought it was superb.  It will stay with me for many years to come.  It was one of those productions where everything was perfect: the cast, set, costumes, script, music and lighting.
I had to study “To Kill a Mockingbird” in 1978 when I was doing my CSE English exam.  I found the book very distressing and I have not re-read it since.  I have never watched the film and I did not know what to expect when we arrived at the theatre last night.  I was mesmerised from start to finish.  By the interval I was so moved I could not speak.  The second half maintained that emotion.  The standing ovation was so well-deserved.
