Gulfshore Playhouse closes out the 2018-19 season with ‘Skylight’
Is true love enough to bridge the distance between two people? That’s the big question asked by “Skylight,” the final production of the 2018-19 season at Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premiere professional regional theatre.
Running May 4-19, the Tony Award– winning play written by British dramatist David Hare takes place on a cold winter night in London. On that evening, schoolteacher Kyra is unexpectedly reunited with her former lover, the recently widowed Tom. Forced to confront their shared past, they find themselves entangled in a passionate clash of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.
The show is directed by New York–based Christian Parker, who currently serves as Chair of the MFA Theatre program at Columbia University. Parker has worked extensively off-Broadway and in regional theatres like Pittsburgh’s City Theatre, Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, and the Atlantic Theatre Company, where he was the associate artistic director for 13 years.
In addition to Mr. Parker, the creative team for “Skylight” includes scenic and lighting designer Steve TenEyck, costume designer Lauren Gaston, sound designer Christopher Colucci, and production stage manager Jamie A. Eckhold.
