Kyra used to work for and sleep with Tom, a successful restaurateur but when his
wife discovered the affair Kyra left and they haven't seen each other since. Tom,
now a widower and adrift turns up at Kyra's council flat in hopes of succour,
salvation and turning back time's pitiless clock. At first he receives a chilly
reception and not only because of Kyra's futile electric heater.

About both the state of the heart and the state of the nation, Skylight is as
relevant today as when it was first staged in 1995.
