John Grisham’s first book, A Time to Kill, will be portrayed on the Broadway stage this fall.
The book is about a white lawyer defending a black man accused of killing his daughter’s rapist. It has already been made into a movie.
Producer Daryl Roth acquired rights to the book in 2009, and playwright Rupert Holmes wrote the play.
