By Open Air Theatre

In our search to uncover the history of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for The Heritage Project, long standing audience member Elizabeth Kay has shared photos from her husband’s time as Master Carpenter at the theatre.

Earl dedicated his life to theatre, working as Master Carpenter between 1967 and 1983. In his 16 years as Master Carpenter, Earl built sets, toured productions and helped to construct the new backstage workshop during the developments to the theatre site during the 1970s.

Here are a few photos to show you some of Earl’s brilliant work for the theatre:
