PETERBOROUGH — Firelight Theatre Workshop’s inaugural season opened in downtown Peterborough on Thursday, March 29 with Skylight,  Sir David  Hare’s Tony and Olivier award-winning play.  Hare is an English playwright, screenwriter (The Hours) and theatre and film director.

 

Skylight features co-founders Nora Fiffer and Jason Lambert as former lovers, Kyra Hollis and Tom Sergeant who, over the course of one winter night, review, navigate, and wonder at their past, present, and future.  At turns humorous, romantic, and sad, this play is arguably Hare’s most compelling, enduring claim to the state of the human heart and world.   The cast also features high school student, Braeden Hatfield as Edward Sergeant, Tom’s eighteen year old son, himself full of questions and hope.

 

A unique feature of the Firelight season is the Pay-What-You-Can First Friday performance for each of the season’s three productions.  Productions on Thursday, Friday and Saturday are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. The company will perform in the Guernsey Building 70 Main Street in Peterborough, NH.

 

In keeping with the company’s mission to present great plays at fair prices, single tickets to Firelight performances are $20, and $15 for students.  They are on sale (along with $50 season subscriptions) at www.firelighttheatreworkshop.com.  The play will run through April 22.

 

Lambert is a Greenville native and teaches English at ConVal High School. In 2016, Fiffer relocated to Peterborough from Chicago, and teaches adult acting classes in Peterborough.
