Directed by William Brown
Matt Farabee and Laura Rook in Skylight.
A chamber play of surprising force, David Hare’s Skylight captures a cultural rift as powerful and polarizing today as it was when the piece premiered at the National Theater in Great Britain in 1995. On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful and charismatic restaurant owner whose wife has just passed away. As the night wears on, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. Director William Brown makes his Court Theatre debut with this intimate, contemporary drama.
