Actress Carey Mulligan is to make her West End debut alongside Bill Nighy in a revival of David Hare’s ‘Skylight’.
Stephen Daldry will direct the play, which begins previews at Wyndham’s Theatre from June 6, reported BBC online. Mulligan plays schoolteacher Kyra Hollis who receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, the recently widowed Tom Sergeant.
Mulligan was last on stage in the Atlantic Theater Company’s 2011 production of ‘Through A Glass Darkly in New York’. She made her Broadway debut in Ian Rickson’s production of Chekhov’s’ The Seagull’.
The actress recently finished filming ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’, directed by Thomas Vinterberg. The film is due for release later this year. She begins filming ‘Suffragette’ directed by Sarah Gavron and written by Abi Morgan this month.
