PORGY AND BESS, ALL MY SONS, TWELFTH NIGHT & More Set for Regent's Park Open Air Theatre in 2014
Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, where the 2012 Shakespeare in the Park production of Into the Woods originated, has today announced a season of five productions for 2014. Opening the season on May 15 (running until June 7), Artistic Director Timothy Sheader will direct Arthur Miller's 20th Century classic play All My Sons. Harold Brighouse's Hobson's Choice will then run from June 15 (until July 12), directed by Nadia Fall, alongside a production of Twelfth Night re-imagined for everyone aged six and over. This production of Shakespeare's comedy for younger audiences will be directed by Max Webster and will also be supported by in-school workshops devised by the Young Shakespeare Company for years 3-6.
Celebrated as a landmark piece of American theatre, the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess plays from July 17 (until August 23), directed by Timothy Sheader, with a book adapted by Suzan-Lori Parks and a musical score adapted by Diedre L. Murray.
The 2013 critically acclaimed sold-out production of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird adapted by Christopher Sergel will then return to the venue completing the 2014 season (August 28 to September 13) prior to a UK Tour, as previously announced.
