On a bitterly cold London evening, Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, 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 battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. Winner of London’s Olivier Award for Best Play and a Tony Award®-winning hit on Broadway, Skylight is, says the New York Post, a “luminously beautiful and wildly truthful” love story. “Theater-going doesn't get much better than this." McCarter Artistic Director Emily Mann directs.
