Two former lovers are reunited, years after their affair. In a tiny, freezing flat in the East End, they wrestle with their past, their present – and each other. Driven by a zinging, stinging mixture of wit and anger, David Hare’s chamber masterpiece is a passionate dissection of the state of the nation and the human heart. A modern classic, Skylight is even more resonant now than when it premiered at the National Theatre in 1995. Revived at the Wyndham’s Theatre in 2014 starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan, storming Broadway and achieving the 2015 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, Hare’s play hits you straight between the eyes with its mixture of private pain and public rage at a profoundly polarised society. Fierce, funny, and achingly truthful, Skylight is a must-see drama about power, politics and passion.
