Cheap Skylight tickets at Wyndham's Theatre
Skylight was originally produced in 1995 at The National Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway. It was that year’s recipient of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play.
Bill Nighy, whose extensive film credits include Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and whose stage roles include Pravda and the world premiere of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour on Broadway, stars alongside Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davies, The Great Gatsby, An Education) making her West End stage debut. They are joined by Matthew Beard (An Education, One Day, The Look of Love).
Skylight is directed by Stephen Daldry who recently directed the sell-out West End production of The Audience and whose award-winning stage work also includes An Inspector Calls and Billy Elliott the Musical.
On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant, a successful and charismatic 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 dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

Wyndham's Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Wyndham's Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
Wyndham's Theatre is situated on Charing Cross Road in the West End of London, close to Leicester Square tube station. Built in 1899, this 970 seat venue was where Madonna made her West End debut (in Up for Grabs).
The first production at the Wyndham’s Theatre was David Garrick by T.W Robertson, which opened on November 161899. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Godspell, The Boyfriend, The Witches, Up for Grabs starring Madonna and the Vagina Monologues.
Today, the Wyndham’s Theatre enjoys consistent success and is known for staging both revivals and new works. The theatre has presented an enormously diverse repertoire over the years, but in years recent more plays than musicals have appeared on its stage.
Many of the best known names in British theatre have appeared at Wyndham's Theatre over the years. Among them are including Vanessa Redgrave in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Alec Guinness and Eileen Atkins in The Cocktail Party, Paul Scofield in The Tempest and John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson in Harold Pinter's No Man's Land. The cast of the rock-musical Godspell, which opened in January 1972, included two future big hitters making their West End theatre debuts: David Essex and Jeremy Irons.
In 2008 the theatre was closed for refurbishments. Delfont-Mackintosh, current owners of the theatre, spent over £3 million on its restoration, although very few readily visible aesthetic changes were made.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Wyndham’s Theatre make it the perfect place to see drama, comedy and small scale musicals. Recent successes include the Donmar Warehouse’s productions of Ivanov, Twelfth Night, Madame de Sade and Hamlet, as well as The History Boys, An Inspector Calls, Avenue Q, Much Ado About Nothing, The King’s Speech and Abigail’s Party.
Whatever you decide to see at the Wyndham’s Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
