MOREoutdoor events announced as part of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s 2020 season

ALL events have now been re-scheduled for 2021. Dates have been adjusted accordingly.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre have announced the first of their 2020 MOREoutdoor events, held on Sunday evenings during the summer.

Comedians include Luisa Omielan and Jimmy Carr; while stars performing Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year ‘Live’ include Harry Enfield, Kate Fleetwood, Henry Goodman, Felicity Kendal, Tracy Ann Oberman, Issy van Randwyck, Samatha Spiro and Susan Wokoma.

The Luna Cinema will present a 30th Anniversary screening of Pretty Woman (Sunday, August 22 at 8.15pm) and 40th Anniversary screening of The Shining (Sunday, September 5 at 7.45pm). VIP tickets are available for the screenings and they include a pre-screening glass of champagne (or soft drink for U18s), a blanket, and a best seat.

Jimmy Carr: Terribly Funny – Sunday, July 11 at 8pm. Recommended for ages 16+.

Carr’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love. But they’re just jokes – they are not the terrible things. Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.

Allie Esiri Presents: Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year LIVE – Sunday, July 18 at 7.45pm.

A line-up of celebrated actors including Felicity Kendal, Harry Enfield, Tracy Ann Oberman, Henry Goodman, Susan Wokoma, Kate Fleetwood, Issy van Randwyck and Samantha Spiro join author Allie Esiri who will bring to life her best-selling anthology Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year.

Who was William Shakespeare? Why does he still speak to us today? How come he speaks about Climate Change? Did he really leave his wife his second-best bed? All this and more will be revealed as we journey through the life and work of our greatest writer, vividly portrayed by a group of supremely talented actors with a special connection to his work – and to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

It was at the theatre that Kendal spent a season playing Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hero in Much Ado About Nothing, van Randwyck earned an Olivier nomination for Kiss Me, Kate, Spiro played her acclaimed Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing and won the Olivier for Hello, Dolly!, and just last year Wokoma’s Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream was deemed a triumph.

Join them, plus others, for what promises to be a remarkable evening, perfect for friends and family.

NB: All artists appear subject to availability.

Luisa Omielan: God Is A Woman – Sunday, August 8 at 7.45pm. Recommended for ages 18+.

Luisa Omielan is the first British comedian to ever receive a BAFTA Breakthrough Award for comedy. She has had three ground-breaking hit shows. First, she asked What Would Beyoncé Do?! (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!); then she asked Am I Right Ladies?! – and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views; and then she turned to politics and got a show on the BBC entitled Politics for Bitches. So the next logical step was for Omielan to bring all of that spark to religion!

At a time when it feels like the world is about to be set on fire and we’re asking ourselves why it’s all going so horribly wrong, and “what can we do to fix it?”, Omielan’s upcoming show God Is A Woman couldn’t come at a more important time. Expect Mary Magdalene, dick jokes and her two year old sidekick Bernie, the Bernese Mountain Dog!

To accompany MOREoutdoor events, there is a choice of pre-event dining options, including The Regent’s Park Burger served from The Grill, Picnics and Luxury Hampers for Two. The Gin Experience for Two includes reserved seating before the event and ingredients for two double Sacred Gin G&Ts each.
