About the Play:
Broadway and the West End applauded this intensely clear sighted and compassionate play about a love affair. Kyra is surprised to see the son of her former lover at her apartment in a London slum. He hopes she will reconcile with his distraught, now widowed, father. Tom, a restless, self made restaurant and hotel tycoon, arrives later that evening, unaware of his son's visit. Kyra, who was his invaluable business associate and a close family friend until his wife discovered their affair, has since found a vocation teaching underprivileged children. Is the gap between them unbridgeable, or can they resurrect their relationship?

SKYLIGHT is the winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, the 2015 Drama Desk Award, the 2015 Drama League Award for Best Revival of a Play, and the Guardian's Best New Play Award. Originally produced at London's Royal National Theatre.
