Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby) are featured in the highly-anticipated production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience), and broadcast live from the West End by National Theatre Live. On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires.

A Ghostly Tribute to Kurt VonnegutThis quirky comedy set during 1960s America features big game hunter and war hero Harold Ryan who returns home to America after having been presumed dead for several years. Harold finds that his wife Penelope has developed relationships with men very much unlike himself, and that his son, Paul, has been pampered and grown unmanly. Harold Ryan, the prolific killing machine, is very unsatisfied. The "Wanda June" of the title is a young girl who died before she could celebrate her birthday. She was run over by an ice cream truck, but she is very pleased with her situation in Heaven. She and several other deceased connections to Harold speak to the audience from Heaven.

San Juan County Fairgrounds, Marie Boe Bldg.

Stage Left is thrilled to announce a four week run of the dynamic, thought-provoking, Tony Award-winning play, "RED," by John Logan. Although set in the studio of abstract painter Mark Rothko, in 1950s New York, this play speaks a universal language about a generation passing the baton, about ethics and art, about the ferocity of artistic passion—all seen through the father/son, mentor/student relationship of Rothko and his apprentice, Ken.

Daniel Mayes returns as Rothko;  and this year Stage Left introduces Seattle's Jonathan Shue as Ken.  

Dates & Show Times: October 24 - November 16,  Thursday & Friday & Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 4:00 p.m.
