The company behind the Broadway adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird has blocked a different touring production of the novel by threatening legal action.
The performances were to take place in England and use playwright Christopher Sergel’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s book, according to the New York Times.
However, Atticus — the firm behind the new version — said that it holds worldwide rights for professional stagings of To Kill A Mockingbird and was also planning to put on performances in England (though no date was provided).
