In recent years, Bread & Butter has focused on small-cast contemporary dramas (Red, The North Pool, the world-premiere of Funeral Game), and we’re proud to be adding Skylight to this list of productions.
The play features Bread & Butter Theatre’s Lana Palmer and Bruce Avery alongside Tyler Aguallo, and is directed by Bill Peters.
