Bringing Skylight to Life with Emily Mann, Mahira Kakkar, and Zane Pais

- Free and Open to the Public!

The Arts Council of Princeton and McCarter Theatre Center present a Special Community Stage Event, Bringing Skylight to Life.

McCarter Theatre Center’s Artistic Director and Resident Playwright Emily Mann will be joined in conversation by Mahira Kakkar (Miss Witherspoon, Five Mile Lake, Hank and Asha) and Zane Pais (Dead Poets Society), actors from McCarter’s upcoming production of Skylight, David Hare’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning masterpiece.

Emily will speak about her process—from tablework to tech and previews — as a stage director working with actors to craft deep and rich performances, and Mahira and Zane will share their perspectives as professional actors in collaboration with directors, in the skins of their characters, and in the service of playwrights. Then the trio will dig into the details of their work together on Skylight, a play actors love to play and Emily has always wanted to direct. Please join us for an intimate and fascinating discussion, which will include a Q&A with the audience.

Paul Robeson Center for the Arts
