Sneak Peek at Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy Starring in SKYLIGHT - Rehearsals Begin Today
Rehearsals begin today (6 May 2014) for Stephen Daldry's production of David Hare's Skylight. In a major West End revival of Hare's Olivier award-winning play, Daldry directs Matthew Beard as Edward Sergeant, Carey Mulligan as Kyra Hollis and Bill Nighy as Tom Sergeant.
Skylight opens at the Wyndham's Theatre on 18 June 2014, with previews from 6 June and is booking to 23 August 2014. Designs are by Bob Crowley with lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Paul Arditti and music by Paul Englishby.
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.
There will be a number of top price stalls seats available as day seats at £15 for every performance, released for sale at the Box Office on day of performance, in person at 10am
