Photo Flash: First Look at Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy & Matthew Beard in SKYLIGHT at Wyndham's Theatre
Stephen Daldry directs Matthew Beard (Edward Sergeant), Carey Mulligan (Kyra Hollis) and Bill Nighy (Tom Sergeant) in a major West End revival of David Hare's Olivier award-winning Skylight. Opening at the Wyndham's Theatre on 18 June, the show's strictly limited run plays until 23 August 2014. Designs are by Bob Crowley with lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Paul Arditti and music by Paul Englishby. Check out a first look below!
On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.
Skylight premiered at the National Theatre in 1995 and that year was the recipient of the Laurence Olivier award for Best Play. The production transferred to the Wyndham's Theatre in the West End and then Broadway. In a return to the West End, the production opened at the Vaudeville Theatre in June 1997.
Skylight is produced in the West End by Robert Fox Limited and Scott Rudin. Fox produced the original West End transfer and the Vaudeville production of Skylight. He and Rudin co-produced the Broadway production.
