September brings the first leaves of autumn and the start of a new London theatre season.  

Continuing to play this month are Noël Coward’s typically stylish Private Lives at the Gielgud Theatre and the National Theatre’s hit transfer, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Apollo. Among newly-launched shows are The Sound of Music at the open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park, where there may not be any hills, but the trees and the picnic lawns are alive with sound of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s family favourite.  

Among the highlights of shows opening this month:    

BARKING IN ESSEX
