Roles:

SCOUT: a young girl about to experience the events that will shape the rest of her life, she should, ideally, seem as young as nine. She has such an important role to lay, however, that it will probably be necessary to cast an older girl in the part. Scout is courageous and forthright. If a question occurs to her, she'll ask it.

JEAN LOUISE: She's Scout, grown older, looking back on the time she was the young Scout, looking for answers to questions that still exist in her memory of that time. She isn't connected directly to the people in the play, though on occasion there's almost a communication between them. What is happening on stage is Jean Louise re-living the dramatic time of her youth in her mind. There should be a subtle suggestions about her appearance and manner that suggests Scout-grown older.
