We relish the chance to take on David Hare, whose particular combination of intelligence and emotion makes for potent, complex, exhilarating theater. Take for example the relationship at the core of Skylight. It is irresistible. Maybe even desperate. But love it is, in its most undeniable form. Through a prism of explosive emotion, two former lovers reconnect, trying to confront their troubled past so they're able to face their future. But as we all know, decisions have consequences, and these could be dire to everyone involved, head and heart, body and soul. A sexy, intoxicating melange of love and lust; connection and regret, and the fleeting happiness that can come when they're all in sync.
