Tupelo Community Theatre presents A Time To Kill


A Time to Kill
March 7-9, 2019
Adapted for the stage by Rupert Holmes from the book by John Grisham

Carl Lee Hailey is on trial for shooting two men in the very courtroom where he now stands trial. His attorney Jake Brigance is willing to risk everything to defend his client’s life. As the trial heats up, the community is torn apart in this gripping adaptation of John Grisham’s incendiary novel about race, crime, and family in small-town America that asks the question: when is it right to take justice into your own hands?
