Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan star in Stephen Daldry’s new production of David Hare’s play Skylight at the Wyndham’s Theatre.

Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) directs a new production of David Hare’s acclaimed play Skylight at the Wyndham’s Theatre (6 June 2014 to 23 August 2014).

Cary Mulligan (The Great Gatsby) makes her West End debut in the play, alongside Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Matthew Beard (An Education).

The show’s designs are by Bob Crowley with lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Paul Arditti and music by Paul Englishby.


Teacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan), who is eking out an existence in London, is visited on the same evening by a father and son: she had been living years earlier with the Sergeant family but left after an affair with the father, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy). The son Edward (Matthew Beard) saw her as a big sister who abandoned him and demands to know why she left in the way she did. Later, Tom arrives, her much older ex who is a successful restaurant entrepreneur. Where once they shared opinions on everything, from politics to class, now they stand divided.


The play features major Hollywood stars Carey Mulligan as Kyra Hollis, Bill Nighy as Tom Sergeant, alongside Matthew Beard as Edward.

News about Skylight

First Look: Posh – The Movie
Laura Wade's hit West End play Posh gets the big-screen treatment in new  Lone Scherfig movie starring Max Irons, Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="590"] The cast of Posh - The Movie![/caption] Laura Wade's hit play Posh, which ran at the Royal Court in 2010 and transferred to the Duke of York's in 2012, is all set for the big screen. Directed by An Education's Lone Scherfig, with a screenplay by Wade, the movie opens on 19 September 2014. The story of rich university boys doing terrible things struck a raw nerve when it opened during the 2010 general election, and draws more than a few similarities to Oxford University's Bullingdon Club, where David Cameron and Boris Johnson were members. The cast of boys in the movie includes Max Irons, son of Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack, as Miles and Hunger Games actor Sam Claflin as Alistair, who are first years at Oxford University determined to join the notorious Riot Club. Other cast include Douglas Booth as Harry Villiers, Sam Reid as Hugo, Holliday Grainger as Lauren and Jessica Brown-Findlay as Rachel, plus Natalie Dormer, Michael Jibson, Freddie Fox and Matthew Beard - who will shortly be playing against An Education star Carey Mulligan in Skylight at the Wyndham's Theatre Scherfig told Empire magazine that the aim of the film is to cover broader themes of power and class and won't pull any punches: “It’s more dynamic and energetic and dramatic and tough than the films I've done previously.”
