National Theatre Live returns to Loughborough with a screening of Skylight

A perilous clash of ideologies and desires starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan will be screened at Cope Auditorium on 16 November, 7pm.

‘Skylight’ is a National Theatre Live screening and is one of their most successful releases of all time.

Returning to the big screen after nearly ten years, Bill Nighy (Living) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) feature in the critically acclaimed revival of David Hare’s play, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience).

On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her former lover. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.
