Following an acclaimed, sellout season in 2013, the Open Air Theatre’s production of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic returns to Regent’s Park this summer.

With courage and compassion, lawyer Atticus Finch seeks the truth, and his daughter, Scout – a young girl on the cusp of adulthood – brings new hope to a neighbourhood in turmoil.
Daniel Betts (Skylight, RSC, Sweet Bird of Youth, The King’s Speech) has been cast as Atticus Finch, alongside Zackary Momoh as Tom Robinson, Christopher Akrill as Boo Radley and Phil King.
Full casting includes Geoff Aymer (Reverend Sykes), Victoria Bewick (Mayella Ewell), David Carlyle (Nathan Radley/Mr Gilmer), Natalie Grady (Miss Maudie Atkinson), Jamie Kenna (Heck Tate), Susan Lawson Reynolds (Calpurnia) and Christopher Saul (Mrs Walter Cunningham/Judge Taylor).
