“Set in the Deep South, Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel sees racial injustice envelop a small-town community. Through courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, and his feisty daughter, Scout – a young girl on the cusp of adulthood – brings new hope to a neighbourhood in turmoil.
This utterly enchanting and timely production from London’s award-winning Regent’s Park Theatre captures the warmth, poignancy and magic of this best-loved classic”.
Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is to return for a UK tour in 2019, opening at Curve Theatre, Leicester, on 7th February.
One of the greatest novels of the 20th century, Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel, the production originally opened Open Air Theatre’s 2013 season, before touring the UK in 2015 – including a month long residency at the Barbican Theatre – playing to sell out audiences.
The production is directed by Timothy Sheader, and features design by Jon Bausor, composition by Phil King, movement by Naomi Said, sound design by Ian Dickinson and lighting design by Oliver Fenwick.
The production will star Summer Jenkins and Eve Prenelle (alternating the role of Scout), Stanley Jarvis, Jaxon Knopf and Theo Josse Wilkinson (alternating the role of Jem), Billy Marlow, Joshua Pickering and Jack Riley (alternating the role of Dill), Pearl Appleby (Mayella Ewell), Dave Fishley (Reverend Sykes), Joseph Fletcher (Arthur Radley), Kieran Hill (Heck Tate), Phil King (Link Deas, at certain performances), Alexandra Mathie (Stephanie Crawford/Mrs Dubose), Ged McKenna (Judge Taylor/Walter Cunningham), John Omole (Tom Robinson), Luke Potter (Link Deas, at certain performances), Carl Rice (Bob Ewell), Simon Robson (Atticus Finch), Sarah Tansey (Maudie Atkinson), Paul Woodson (Nathan Radley/Mr Gilmer) and Amanda Wright (Calpurnia).
According to The Times, this “terrific retelling of Harper Lee’s classic makes dramatic gold”, whose “real triumph is in perfectly capturing its warmth and wonder (Time Out)”.
“Some productions have the power effortlessly to win you over and this enchanting heartfelt adaptation…is one of them (Mail On Sunday).
