SkylightCarey Mulligan makes her West End debut starring as the former lover of Bill Nighy in Stephen Daldry's revival of David Hare's Skylight. Originally staged at the National Theatre in 1995, when it was recipient to the Lawrence Olivier Award for Best Play, Skylight returns to the London stage, opening at the Wyndham's Theatre in June. The play follows the story of schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) when she receives an unexpected visit from her former lover Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy). As the evening develops the two rekindle their romance but soon find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and desires. Renowned director Stephen Daldry - known for West End productions The Audience and Billy Elliott as well as on screen successes The Hours and The Reader - directs the play, which also stars Matthew Beard as Sergeant's son.
