Description

2015 TONY AWARD WINNER

Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby) feature in the highly anticipated production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience), broadcast live from the West End by National Theatre Live.

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), 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.

"Beautifully acted by Bill Nighy, Carey Mulligan and Matthew Beard." - Michael Billington, The Guardian

"Thrillingly revived by Stephen Daldry in a knockout production." - Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph

"Bill Nighy at full belt on stage is astonishing, unbalancing, unforgettable." - Quentin Letts, The Daily Mail

"Carey Mulligan gives a performance of extraordinarily contained power." - Paul Taylor, The Independent

"Complex, thrilling and provocative." - Neil Norman, The Daily Express
