Current Theatre Production

Spring 2015: “Mok’ing-bûrd

By Julie Jenson based on award–winning novel by Kathryn Erskine

The CCA Theatre Department will be the very first theater in the country to produce this currently unpublished work since its debut in January at the Kennedy Center.

"Caitlin's world has always been black and white. As a youth on the autism spectrum, she used to rely on her older brother to help make sense of things beyond dictionaries, schedules, and the facial expressions chart at school. But now that he's gone, she's all on her own. With the support of her advisor, father, and a new reading buddy, Caitlin begins to understand how to get close to people again, embrace the "messiness" of emotions, and use her burgeoning artistic talents to move on. This moving, vibrant, and surprisingly humorous play shows how the perseverance of one girl can change a community--and how black and white can always be complemented by a kaleidoscope of colors.” - Kennedy Center

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
