John Grisham Novel Adapted on Broadway

1001940_681957185148898_1426093782_nA Broadway stage adaptation of John Grisham’s 1989 legal thriller, A Time to Kill, will open on October 20, 2013. Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes adapted the book and Ethan McSweeny directed.

According to the show’s website, the show tells the story of “a Southern community torn in half by an unspeakable crime. As the shocking news hits the public, small town America becomes the center of a media storm, where innocence is the victim, race is on trial and lives hang in the balance.”

Playbill.com reports that this project marks the first time a John Grisham book has been adapted for a theatrical production. A film adaptation of this book, featuring Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, and Kevin Spacey, came out in 1996.
