Event Description

English theatre: Skylight

Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (“Billy Elliot”).

Thursday, October 23 at 8pm.
From National Theatre, London
Running time: 150 minutes

 

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), 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.

Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).

Skylight is directed by Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience with Helen Mirren, which was also broadcast to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

Skylight was originally produced at the National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End and Broadway, and won an Olivier Award for Best Play.
