Skylight is an Ambitious Show from a New Company
The folks at fledgling theatre company Hidden Cove Productions certainly have lofty ambitions. The title of their debut show, Skylight, seems to embody this. To me this was a show that swung for the fences, fell short of a home-run, but did manage to get on base.
I’m sure you’ve seen ads for this production plastered all over the TTC, that’s how I first heard about it. Skylight is written by the celebrated British playwright David Hare, someone that your more theatre savvy friends will at least pretend to know about. It won the Lawrence Olivier Award for Play of the Year in 1996. With decorated director Larry Moss at the helm and Stratford veteran Sara Topham as one of the leads, it’s clear that Hidden Cove is pulling out all the stops for their first show.
