Sparks of another sort fly in the final show of the season. 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.
“I’m completely entranced with Skylight. It is an intellectual, romantic, witty, and deeply actor-focused piece with three fantastic, rich, thoughtful roles from one of the major theatrical voices of the past 40 years. It was written more than 20 years ago, but its subject matter is particularly relevant in our era of class privilege and cultural division.”
