Author Harper Lee has started a non-profit company to produce a play of her iconic book “To Kill a Mockingbird” in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, ending a a dispute that threatened to end the show.  Licensing firm Dramatic Publishing had not extended the performance rights for the production, so Lee stepped in and created Mockingbird Company.  It will produce the play from 2016 forward, giving proceeds to local communities.  Performances for the play for this month and next are sold out, boosted by excitement over the upcoming publication of Lee’s second book “Go Set a Watchman”.  The book is the 88-year-old writer’s first release since the 1960s.
