Join Theatre Calgary as it moves out of the Max Bell Theatre to present its inaugural tc Up Close presentation—an intimate performance of David Hare’s Skylight.

Watch up close as this deeply personal performance unfolds in the Arts Commons’ Engineered Air Theatre. With a limited number of seats available each performance, the audience tightly surrounds the stage to meet two former lovers from vastly different worlds who find themselves locked in a battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desire.

“It’s a great choice for this series, because it’s set in one room and it’s a chamber piece, but the size of the emotions in the piece are incredible—the scope that they explore,” says Director Valerie Planche, in a statement. “You really are a fly on the wall. So with that big of a scope in relationship exploration in such a small space, I think it’s an incredible experience the audience is going to have.”

Skylight runs February 14 to 25, 2017 at the Engineered Air Theatre, Arts Commons (225 8th Ave. SE).
