When successful novelist Charles Condomine hires a psychic as research for his new book, he ends up encountering the unexpected – the ghost of his first wife! Now he must balance his new (and very much alive!) wife with an increasingly incensed ghost in this witty comedy of manners from Noel Coward. Widely considered a theatrical masterpiece, and certainly Coward’s spookiest story, this smart and supernatural comedy is filled with rich characters, as well as a few spirited and theatrical surprises.

Skylight

by David Hare
Directed by Darren Sextro
May 23 – June 10, 2018
H&R Block City Stage at Union Station

Abandoned love and clashing social views collide with wit and wisdom when an older, successful restaurateur comes to visit his much younger former mistress, a schoolteacher in a poor London neighborhood. Over the course of the evening (and the on-stage preparation of an actual meal), they revisit what brought them together and pushed them apart in this love affair that, strangely enough, reflects our world today. One of David Hare’s finer works, Skylight has won both the Olivier Award for best play and a Tony Award for Best Revival.
