“one of the great post-war British playwrights” (Independent on Sunday)


“A dramatist of the first rank is writing at full stretch, in complete command of his material, undogmatic and unafraid, unforgiving but compassionate” (Sunday Times)

“A magnificent chamber play by one of the few major playwrights in our language… Skylight might well one day take its place among the small, residual handful of fin de siecle classics.” (New York Post)
