David Hare, hailed by London's The Guardian as a playwright who "engages the heart and mind," brings together past lovers for a heated reunion in a chilly London flat. Gutsy, sexy, and stubborn Kyra and sophisticated, witty, and reserved Tom are an unlikely and volatile match. Intimate, thought-provoking, and often funny, Skylight is a head-on collision of wills and desires from a powerful voice in contemporary theater.
"A play can't get much more intimate... Geneviève Perrier makes a remarkable Kyra. Peter DeLaurier is masterful."
–The Philadephia Inquirer
"Compelling direction and a pair of richly textured performances... stunning production!" –Broad Street Review
"Brilliant writing, brilliant theater. Gritty and beautiful." –WRTI-FM
"Engrossingly sincere performances." –Philadephia City Paper
"Three actors giving of themselves as honestly as they can... and I'm not sure I can think of a better reason to see a play." –Philadelphia Metro
