About the showArtistic Director of the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre Tim Sheader directs a new production of Harper Lee's classic American novel at the beautiful outdoor venue. Adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel, this is the opening production in the venue's 2013 summer season. Following Sheader's previous success with 'The Crucible' and 'Lord of the Flies', this is set to be an imaginative and bold retelling of a powerful and unforgettable story.
Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is set in America's Deep South. As a racial injustice begins to take over a small-town community, lawyer Atticus Finch sets out to reveal the truth about the case. His daughter Scout, herself a girl struggling with the arrival of adulthood, brings hope and light to a community much in need of a new beginning. This is a tale of courage, compassion and defying the odds.
Robert Sean Leonard stars as Atticus Finch, and has previously won a Tony Award for his performance on Broadway in 'The Invention of Love'. He is perhaps best known for starring in eight seasons of the Fox TV drama 'House'. He is joined in this production by Izzy Lee as Scout and Daniel Tuite as Boo Radley.
