Ford's Theatre in Washington opens its season with the American classic To Kill a Mockingbird, which begins previews tonight and opens Tuesday.

The production, adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel, is based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, which tells the story of a white attorney who defends a black man accused of rape in Alabama in 1935. The play stars Robert Emmet Lunney as attorney Atticus Finch, David Aron Damane as his client, and Rita Glynn and Jeffrey Ward as Finch's young children. Direction is by Timothy Childs, who staged Ford's production of Inherit the Wind last season.

Show times at Ford's, 511 10th St. N.W., Washington, are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 1 p.m. most Thursdays and Nov. 7 and 14, 2:30 Sundays and most Saturdays, through Nov. 18. Tickets are $27-$43. Call 202-347-4833.
