Understanding loss can be a tricky business for children, and especially so for those with disabilities. The Kennedy Centerís poignant production of Mockingbird explores an autistic girlís emotional, unique journey through grief and healing in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. Mockingbird, adapted from the award-winning young adult novel by Kathryn Erskine, stands out from the sometimes-fluffy realm of family theater with a complex emotional journey that should resonate with parents and children alike.
