About the event

“With you, when something is right, it’s never enough. You don’t value happiness. Because you always want more.

Schoolteacher Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom, a charismatic self-made restaurant tycoon. Supper bubbles on the stove, a cheap electric heater tries to dispel the cold of a London winter’s night and flickers of their former passion rekindle. As they fall into a battle of opposing politics and mutual desire, is the gap between them too great to be bridged?

One of the great intimate plays of passionate ideas and complex love – delicate, hilarious and thought provoking.

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.
