Harper Lee’s classic novel makes its way back to the stage with an appearance at the 2014 season at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park, following its previous run in the 2013 season. The story of racial equality in the American Deep South has echoed through the generations ever since it was first published in the 1960s and it is now one of the most famous novels of all time.
And so it is with great anticipation that audiences welcome it back to the stage in the capital under the direction of Timothy Sheader in the same year that the Open Air Theatre also welcomes All My Sons and Hobson’s Choice, among others.
To Kill a Mockingbird is Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that follows the character of Atticus Finch as he is tasked with defending an unfairly-accused black man in a rape trial that is steeped in prejudice. Set in the South of the American during turbulent economic times, it is widely regarded and will come to life on the stage in Regent’s Park.
And Timothy Sheader directs as the Artistic Director of the Open Air Theatre, a position he has held since 2007. During his tenure he has overseen a range of successful shows and he has been more than capable of doing Harper Lee’s text justice in the eyes of its fans. Last year the venue saw the likes of Pride And Prejudice appear, whilst previous years have included A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Ragtime the Musical, Crazy For You, Lord Of The Flies, The Crucible and The Comedy Of Errors, among others.
Audiences can pick up theatre tickets for the run of To Kill a Mockingbird, which kicks off at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre on Thursday 28th August 2014.
