Set in 1935, this play illustrates the social issues of this time period as the black people of the community have a special feeling about Scout’s father. Unpleasant things are shouted and the bewildered girl turns to her father, Atticus, a lawyer. Atticus explains that he is defending a young Negro wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Atticus fights his legal battle with a result that is part defeat, part triumph. As Atticus comes out of the courthouse, the deeply moved town minister tells Scout, “Stand up. Your father’s passing!”
