The Regent's Park Open Air Theatre production of To Kill A Mockingbird will embark on a new UK tour in 2019, it was been announced.

Co-produced with Jonathan Church and the Curve Leicester, the stage show is based on Harper Lee's classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, widely regarded as one of the most seminal of the twentieth century.

The stage show was first produced at the Open Air Theatre in 2013 with direction by Timothy Sheader, before embarking on a 2015 UK tour and performing for a month at the Barbican.

When the show came to the Barbican it was described as "hard to top".

The new tour, directed by Fiona Dunn, will open at Curve Leicester on 7 February, with venues to be announced for the rest of 2019.
