Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has today confirmed its complete programme of shows for summer 2014. All My Sons will open the season, followed by Hobson’s Choice and Twelfth Night re-imagined for everyone aged six and over. Porgy and Bess will then be staged prior to the previously announced return of To Kill a Mockingbird.
Artistic Director Timothy Sheader will direct Arthur Miller’s 20th Century classic play All My Sons, opening the 2014 season on 15 May.
Hobson’s Choice will then run from 12 June to 12 July, directed by Nadia Fall (Doctor’s Dilemma and Home at the National Theatre, Disgraced at the Bush Theatre).
From 21 June to 12 July, William Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night produced specifically for audiences aged six and over will run in daytime performances alongside Hobson’s Choice
Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess will run from 17 July to 23 August, directed by Timothy Sheader, with a book adapted by Suzan-Lori Parks and a musical score adapted by Diedre L. Murray. A powerful story of love and betrayal Porgy and Bess tells of Porgy, a beggar, and his devotion to taming wild Bess to save her from a life of ruin.
The critically acclaimed sold-out production of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird returns to the venue from 28 August to 13 September to bring the 2014 season to a close. It will play immediately prior to a UK tour running into 2015.
