See National Theatre Live’s Skylight & JOHN

Hannes Langolf in JOHN

You can catch two great UK National Theatre Live productions this week on a screen near you. Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan star in the West End revival of David Hare’s play Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliott). In this play, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Nighy), a 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 battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. Skylight will be screened on Wednesday, January 14 at 2:30 p.m. at Upstate Films Rhinebeck and Sunday afternoon, January 25 at Rosendale Theatre. In addition, the DV8 Physical Theatre’s powerful new production combining traditional theater with dance, titled JOHN will be shown on Sunday, December 28 at 3 p.m. at the Rosendale Theatre. Conceived and directed by Lloyd Newson and based on interviews with real men, it’s a tough story of crime, drug use and survival, suitable for audiences 18 years of age and up.
