Skylight

Skylight

Skylight  is  a  complex,  thought-provoking,  funny  and  remarkably timeless  play  about  power,  politics,  and  passion.  On  a  chilly  night  in  East  London,  schoolteacher  Kyra  Hollis  receives  an  unexpected  visit  first  from  Edward  Sergeant  and  then  his  father Tom  Sergeant,  Kyra’s  one-time  boss  and  long-time  lover.  After  the  painful,  and  unresolved,  dissolution  of  Tom  and  Kyra’s  relationship,  the  pair  have  pulled  away  from  each  other  physically,  emotionally,  and  ideologically,  as  Tom  continues  to  focus  on  his  business  life  and  Kyra  puts  all  her  energy  into  teaching  in  an  East  End  School.  There  is  a  bruising  emotional truth  in  the  writing,  and  an  exhilarating  mixture  of  wit  and  anger  as  these  two  wounded  stubborn  creatures  rake  over  the ashes  of  their  past.
