[books] Skylight (Faber Drama)Author David Hare – Bilb-weil.de

There are times in the theatre when you suddenly find yourself in the grip of silence There is no fidgeting or coughing, no shifting about in seats the audience s attention is so tense it is almost palpable This is because it is both thrilling and dangerous a fight to the death, or the dawning of salvation David Hare s new play, Skylight, is punctuated by such moments They are the signs that a dramatist of the first rank is writing at full stretch, in complete command of his material, undogmatic and unafraid, unforgiving and compassionate Sunday Times Skylight was revived in a new production at the Wyndham s Theatre, London, in June , which received the Evening Standard Revival of the Year Award
