Regents Park Open Air Theatre - Dickens Uncovered
19 June 2017, 09:00
Bringing two of Charles Dickens’s most popular stories out in the open, Dickens Uncovered celebrates the greatest storyteller of London life.
London Theatre of the Year (The Stage Awards 2017), Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, is a summertime essential and an experience not to be missed.
Artistic Director Timothy Sheader directs A Tale of Two Cities (7 Jul – 5 Aug), a new play that cuts to the heart of social and political divides adapted by Matthew Dunster from the brilliant Dickens original. How much more do those in power think Europe’s poor can take? When will the people take to the streets of the cities and roar enough is enough?
This summer the theatre also presents Oliver Twist created for everyone aged six and over (17 Jul – 5 Aug), in daytime performances especially for families. Directed by Caroline Byrne, discover the original story of London’s most famous child as writer Anya Reiss adapts the gripping original for families.
To conclude the season, last year’s award-winning production of Jesus Christ Superstar returns with Declan Bennett and Tyrone Huntley recreating their performances as Jesus and Judas.
Heart-stopping theatre in this truly unique outdoor theatre makes this the perfect event to share with family and friends. Nothing beats the fairy-lit ambiance of the Open Air Theatre, so arrive early to soak up the atmosphere – and why not complete your open air experience with a visit to the barbecue pre-show for The Regent’s Park Burger, a mouth-watering summer classic.
Playing until 1 July, don’t miss Bernstein’s incredible score, and Drew McOnie’s “STYLISH, SULTRY… LAVISH and IMAGINATIVE” (The Times) production of On The Town.
