    Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has today announced five productions for its 2014 season.

    Artistic Director Timothy Sheader (To Kill A Mockingbird, Barnum, NT's The Magistrate, Into The Woods) will kick things off on 15 May directing Arthur Miller's ALL MY SONS, which runs until 7 June. This classic 20th century play is based on the true story of a man alleged to have supplied defective fighter planes during World War II.

    From 12 June, Nadia Fall (Home, Hymn, The Doctor's Dilemma at the National) will direct Harold Brighouse's HOBSON'S CHOICE, until 12 July. Combining comedy and romance, this unlikely love story follows the cobbler Henry Horatio Hobson and his three daughters.

    A production of TWELFTH NIGHT: REIMAGINED FOR EVERYONE AGED SIX AND OVER will run alongside it. Max Webster will direct Shakespeare's comedy, adapted for a younger audience and supported by in-school workshops for years 3-6 by the Young Shakespeare Company.

    A landmark piece of American theatre, George & Ira Gershwin's PORGY AND BESS plays from 17 July until 23 August. Sheader will direct this account of African-American life in 1920s Charleston, South Carolina, with book adapted by Suzan-Lori Parks and musical score adapted by Diedre L. Murray. Featuring the songs “Summertime” and “It Ain't Necessarily So” the musical follows the disabled beggar Porgy as he attempts to rescue Bess from a life of ruin.

    The 2014 Open Air Theatre season will culminate in the return of 2013's critically acclaimed sell-out production of Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD from 28 August until 13 September.
