David Hare at Work on Psychological Thriller | Playbill

News David Hare at Work on Psychological Thriller Skylight playwright David Hare told the New York Post that his next play will be set in Connecticut and is a "psychological thriller."

The acclaimed writer was reluctant to reveal much more about his upcoming work. "I don't want to say too much about it now," he said.

Hare's Skylight, currently playing on Broadway, was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Revival. The play had its world premiere in London in 1995, where it went on to transfer to the West End the following year, then on to Broadway. It was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Play. 

In his interview with the Post, Hare also spoke about his soon-to-be-released memoir, "The Blue Torch Paper," scheduled for publication in the fall. In the book, Hare recounts his life as a writer in New York, where he arrived as a starry-eyed, 17-year old from England in 1964.

Hare's first Broadway credit came in 1983 when Plenty transferred from its Off-Broadway staging at the Public Theater thanks to Joe Papp. He's since had several plays produced on Broadway, including The Secret Rapture, The Judas Kiss, The Blue Room and The Vertical Hour.

Hare has yet to win a Tony Award, but said that it is not something he is concerned about. "It’s been my fate that the larger prizes have tended to elude me, but I’ve long since stopped worrying about it," he told the Post.  

Skylight is currently playing the John Golden Theatre starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan. Tickets can be purchased by visiting skylightbwy.com.
