Fourth Wall Theatre presents ‘Skylight’ by David Hare


“‘Skylight’ is a celebration of small failures and grand dreams, an exploration of love on its most intimate canvas spread out against the unwashed dishes and run-down furniture of modern life.”

Set in a small and tattered suburban flat, ‘Skylight’ condenses a lifetime of love, loss and experience into a single, freezing winter’s night. When schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship. As the evening progresses they find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires, searching for forgiveness in the fading January light.

Performances:
Monday 2nd March, 7:30pm
Tuesday 3rd March, 7:30pm
Wednesday 4th March, 7:30pm

Prices:
£8 (Standard) / £6.5 (Concession) / £6 (DST)

Tickets:
Please note that there are only 35 tickets available per performance.
