London theatergoers will be able to swoon over Mr. Darcy this summer when an outdoor production of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice plays the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. Simon Reade's stage adaptation of the classic novel has been added to the theater's summer season, alongside a re-imagined production of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.
Pride and Prejudice will run June 20, 2013 through July 20. Opening night is set for June 25. The Winter's Tale, which is re-imagined for audiences age six and above, will play June 29 through July 20. No casting has been announced at this time for either production.
As previously announced the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre season will feature Jon Bausor's stage adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird and a revival of The Sound of Music. Directed by the theater's artistic director Timothy Sheader, To Kill a Mockingbird runs May 16 through June 15. The Sound of Music will conclude the season, running July 25 through September 7.
