pg17aLLT Readers Theatre

Ajijic Readers Theatre (ART) at Lakeside Little Theatre presents “Skylight” by David Hare, Friday, April 23 through Sunday, April 25.

The director is Collette Clavadetscher. All shows are at 4 p.m. on the Angel Terrace.

“Skylight” is a complex, thought-provoking, and remarkably timeless drama about power, politics and passion. He is a successful restaurateur in late middle age. She, in her late 20s, is a math teacher in a money-starved school in London’s East End. They were lovers for six years; she left him when his wife discovered their affair. Three years after his wife’s death, they come together; and apart; heatedly, in her freezing flat.

This amateur production of “Skylight” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Tickets can be purchased and paid for by credit card at lakesidelittletheatre.com or by visiting LLT’s box office Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to noon, or one hour before showtime on performance days.

Covid-19 protocols will be in place, including socially distanced seating and mandatory masks.
