February 14-25, 2017
On a crisp London evening, two former lovers from vastly different worlds find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desire. At times deeply personal, at times shockingly confrontational, this is one of the greatest intimate plays ever written. Watch, up close, as the embers of a broken relationship spark, ignite, and illuminate exciting possibilities.
tc Up Close is a new initiative to expand our artistic programming by presenting plays in more intimate settings. Expect the big ideas, big talents and big experiences that have become the hallmark of Theatre Calgary – with the electricity and thrill of being up close with the performers.
Subscribers enjoy first access to Skylight tickets – only 120 seats available per performance. Presented in the Arts Commons Engineered Air Theatre.
