Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird has confirmed a West End transfer for 2020.
The production of Harper Lee’s novel is currently running on Broadway starring Jeff Daniels, and will come to London next year with a new British cast.
Producer Scott Rudin has previously indicated that he had hoped to bring the show to the UK, following the controversial cancellation of a major tour of the play earlier this year.
An adaptation was due to be staged by Jonathan Church Productions, Curve and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre but was pulled at the last minute when Rudin declared to have worldwide exclusivity over the rights and said he intended to mount the Sorkin version in the UK.
He is producing the West End production alongside Barry Diller and Sonia Friedman Productions.
To Kill a Mockingbird will open at the Gielgud Theatre in May, with dates to be announced.
It is directed by Bartlett Sher, with design by Miriam Buether, costumes by Ann Roth, lighting by Jennifer Tipton, sound by Scott Lehrer and an original score by Adam Guettel.
