Court Theatre Artistic Director Charles Newell and Executive Director Stephen J. Albert present Skylight, written by David Hare, and directed by William Brown. Skylight will run now through February 10, 2013 at Court Theatre, 5535 S. Ellis Avenue. Press Opening is tomorrow, January 19, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!

A chamber play of surprising force, David Hare's Skylight captures a cultural rift as powerful and polarizing today as it was when the piece premiered at the National Theater in Great Britain in 1995. On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Laura Rook) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Philip Earl Johnson), a successful and charismatic restaurant owner whose wife has just passed away. As the night wears on, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. Director William Brown makes his Court Theatre debut with this intimate, contemporary drama.

The cast of Skylight includes Laura Rook as Kyra Hollis, Philip Earl Johnson as Tom Sergeant and Matt Farabee as Edward Sergeant.

The creative team includes Todd Rosenthal (scenic design), Rachel Healy (costume design), Jesse Klug (lighting design), Andy Hansen (sound design), John DiResta (assistant director). Sara Gammage is the production stage manager, and Amber Johnson. Eva Breneman is the dialect coach and Maren Robinson is the dramaturg.
