High School Theatre Facepalm

Oh dear:

The Flagler Palm Coast High School production of To Kill a Mockingbird in Palm Coast, FL, has been cancelled due to the script's use of the "N"-word, according to the Miami Herald.

A Nov. 12 opening had been planned for the production of the play, based on Harper Lee's classic novel about a white Southern lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape during the Depression.

Yes, there's a reason why the "N"-word is in there.
