Heartbreak Productions return to Roundhay Park this summer with a ten-day festival of open air theatre throughout August. Shows include the all-time classic family favourite The Secret Garden, and an original murder-mystery spoof, Murder on the Terrace. Renowned for their unique style, Heartbreak Productions tour each production with a small but multi-talented cast of actors drawn from across the country. They are joined this year by a talented team of directors too, including award-winning Dominic Waldron, Paul Chesterton, Kristoffer Huball and Adam Morley.
The Secret Garden: Saturday 5 – Sunday 6 August Adapted from the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this classic promises entertainment for all the family.
Murder on the Terrace: Fri 11 – Sun 13 August Original murder mystery described as “… part Downton, part Agatha Christie. Lots of innuendo and stacks of fun”
Northanger Abbey: Sat 19 – Sun 20 August A newly-commissioned adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic by Dani Carbery.
The Taming of the Shrew: Fri 25 – Sun 22 August. Heartbreak stamp their imitable style on this Shakespeare classic about a controversial yet tender tale of love.
