It’s chilling (and thrilling, too — admit it) to listen to these people talk about one another, especially to the all-hearing, frozen-faced spin master at their center. Their conversation gives new resonance to that credo of cattiness, “If you can’t say anything good about someone, come sit next to me.”

SKYLIGHT by David Hare returns to London's West End June 6, 2014 through August 23, 2014, then Broadway March 2015.

SKYLIGHT
by David Hare

Broadway's Golden Theater, beginning March 13, 2015 through June 14. Opens April 2 

Broadway Website: www.skylightbwy.com 

Skylight was originally produced in 1995 at The National Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway. It was that year’s recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play.

Now it returns in a production loaded with starpower and promise, featuring Bill Nighy and, making her West End debut, Carey Mulligan, as former lovers whose attempt at reconciliation is hampered by the personal and ideological differences they've gone through since they last met.

It's directed by Stephen Daldry, who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience and whose award-winning stage work also includes An Inspector Calls and Billy Elliott the Musical

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, 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's extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. 

He also has an illustrious stage CV that includes numerous David Hare plays, among them A Map of the World at the NT Lyttelton, Hare and Howard Brenton's Pravda at the NT Olivier, and  the original NT production of Skylight, in which Michael Gambon played Tom, at the West End's Vaudeville Theatre and on a UK tour.

Carey Mulligan’s cinematic star has risen inexorably over the last few years, with standout performances in Inside Llewyn Davies, The Great Gatsby and An Education. She will make her West End stage debut in Skylight.

They're joined in the cast by Matthew Beard, whose film work includes An Education, One Day, and The Look of Love.
