A stage adaptation of the classic award-winning novel written by Harper Lee – To Kill A Mockingbird – will be put on at London's Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park this summer.
The story is set in the Deep South and it sees racial injustice take over a small-town community. However, through courage, compassion and sheer force of will, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, while his daughter – Scout – who is on the cusp of adulthood, is able to bring new hope to a neighbourhood severely divided.
This stage adaptation is brought to the Open Air Theatre by Christopher Sergel – the writer of Fame, Get Smart, Meet Me In St Louis and Cheaper by the Dozen. He took over 20 years to adapt this wonderful novel to the stage and premiered initially at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey in 1991.
Set in the beautiful landscaped grounds of London, this atmospheric venue is surrounded by trees twinkling that are sure to entice anybody that is staying in one of the many central London hotels.
Following on from his excellent work with productions of The Crucible and Lord of the Flies, artistic director Timothy Sheader rediscovers this classic in the open air.
The production will be performed at the theatre from May 16th to June 15th.
People will be able to get their hands on tickets for one of the performances from as little as £25, while the best seats in the picturesque house will be available for just £55.
Getting to the venue from your hotel shouldn't provide too many issues – this is because it is situated close to a number of Tube stops including Baker Street, Regent's Park, Great Portland Street and Warren Street.
