Matthews Playhouse is flying high with its upcoming performances of To Kill A Mockingbird — which kicks off on Fri., Oct. 9.  Now, most of us have read author Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning novel at some time or another, but just in case, here’s the lowdown: The book paints a picture of life in the 1930s deep South to a tee, complete with racial injustice running through its pages, as it tells the story of an African-American man who is unjustly accused of rape. Atticus Finch, an attorney and father of a young girl named Scout — you’ll hear plenty from her — stands his ground in defending the man, but that’s when things start shaking up for his family, too. With all that said, performances of this subject matter may be a little hard to chew, but are well worth the bite. The show is directed by June Bayless and also features transition vocals by the gospel act GodSent. Performances continue through Oct. 25. Tickets are $12-$15. Show times are: Oct. 9-10, 8 p.m.; Oct. 16-17, 8 p.m.;Oct. 23-24, 8 p.m.; Oct. 25, 2 p.m. Performances at Matthews Community Center, 100 McDowell St., Matthews. For tickets, call 704-846-8343.
