Harper Lee’s classic drama about racial injustice and the destruction of innocence, To Kill A Mockingbird is to tour the UK following critic acclaim at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
The tour will begin on September 15 at Canterbury Marlowe Theatre and then will tour to Norwich, Malvern, Woking, Leicester, Cardiff, Hull, High Wycombe, Cambridge and Birmingham. Dates for 2015 will be announced soon.
Directed by Timothy Sheader, To Kill a Mockingbird originally opened Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s 2013 season and played sell-out performances.
Due to popular demand, the Christopher Sergel adaptation is returning to end the the venue’s 2014 season.
The 1960 novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, followed by the film adaptation in 1962 which won three Oscars out of the eight it was nominated for.
The UK tour of To Kill a Mockingbird will be produced by Regent’s Park Theatre Ltd, Fiery Angel, Adam Spiegel and William Village.
