Richard Clark Performance of Atticus Finch

On Tuesday, September 27th, Richard Clark will visit the Bridgewater Public Library as Atticus Finch, from Harper Lee’s classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.  As a loving father, compassionate friend and uncompromising attorney, Atticus represents the divine spark in the human spirit as he leads a cast of other unlikely heroes in this story.  The courtroom drama, the poignant interactions between father and children, the harsh realities of bigotry and hatred blend to make this a compelling theatrical event.  The time is 1930’s Alabama but the enduring truth is for now and always. 

Richard Clark has spent over 30 years in New England regional theater and New York Theater.  He is a graduate of Clark University and has studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, The Actors Connection and the Actor’s Loft in New York City.  His shows are based on biographies, autobiographies, personal letters, books and the works of various playwrights.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bridgewater Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.  It will be held in the Flora T. Little Meeting Room on the lower level and begins at 7:00 p.m.  Parking is available in back of the library, located at 15 South Street.
