Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for
Skylight by David Hare, directed by Justin Schaller
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a play about the one who got away. On a chilly, fall evening in London, a restaurateur, Tom Sergeant, visits an old flame, Kyra Hollis, after having lost his wife to cancer. While Tom wished Kyra would teach at university instead of in a high school in East Ham, he hopes that he can rekindle the affair they had ended 3 years ago after they were discovered by his then wife. This play explores the challenges and enlightenments of bringing two polarized worlds together.
