Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has confirmed that they will launch their 2013 season with Harper Lee's American classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel and directed by Open Air Theatre's Artist Director Timothy Sheader.
Proving its success across every form, the 1960 novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, followed by the film adaptation in 1962 which won three Oscars out of the eight it was nominated for. The play will run from 16 May to 15 June 2013. To Kill A Mockingbird is set in the late 1920s, at the height of America’s Great Depression. It tells the story of six-year-old Scout Finch, who lives with her brother Jem and their widowed lawyer father Atticus.
The play is one of four shows. The Open Air theatre will also present The Sound of Music, from 25 July to 7 Sep 2013, and it will be the first time a work by the hit musical-writing partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II has been staged at the Open Air Theatre.
Completing the line-up for 2013, Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy – will play from 20 June to 20 July and, continuing our programme of Shakespeare productions created especially for younger audiences, The Winter’s Tale re-imagined for everyone aged six and over will play from 29 June to 20 July.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 20th of November 2012.
