Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy star in the accalimed new production of David's Hare's Skylight directed by Stephen Daldry at the Wyndhams Theatre.

Schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, 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.
