Some plays dissolve with time but David Hare’s Skylight seems to have got richer since its 1995 premiere at the National Theatre. Revived at the Wyndhams Theatre in 2014 starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan, storming Broadway and achieving the 2015 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, Skylight is about the state of the nation and matters of the heart as two former lovers with differing political views are reunited years after their affair.
Hare’s play hits you straight between the eyes with its mixture of private pain and public rage at our profoundly polarised society. There is a bruising emotional truth and a fierce psychological sharpness in the writing and a zinging, stinging mixture of wit and anger.
Skylight is a complex, thought-provoking and remarkably timeless drama about power, politics and passion.

outside edge synopsis and character information
A summer afternoon. An amateur cricket club. A drastically undermanned cricket team gathers for the match of the season – bringing their grudges, their secrets and worst of all, their wives.
Roger, the captain of the cricket club, is having trouble assembling the team. Kevin is trying not to let Maggie distract him from his spin bowling. Bob and Alex hate each other. And Dennis’s cut-price equipment may not be what it seems… As revelation follows revelation and an afternoon’s cricket descends into chaos, the team’s loyalties blur. Can they stand united against their opponents (British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East)?
Will Sharon ever come out of the toilet? And… what if it rains?
Loved by fans of theatre (and cricket) ever since its premiere in 1979, this quintessentially British comedy dissects the politics of a tiny community with hilarious aplomb.
