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.
