Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan feature in the highly anticipated West End production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry, captured live in London’s West End by National Theatre Live.
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 ActuallyNotes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, plays alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn DavisThe Great GatsbyAn Education) who is making her West End stage debut, and Matthew Beard (An EducationOne DayThe 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.
David Hare is the author of 29 plays for stage, including PlentyRacing DemonAmy’s ViewPravda (with Howard Brenton) and Stuff Happens. His many screenplays includeThe Hours and The Reader.
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.
