Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Twelve scenes chronicle the love affairs, rivalries, seductions, and betrayals of four characters in a spare, intense style., where the quartet of strangers meet, fall in love, and become caught up in a web of sexual desire and betrayal. Closer opened at London’s Royal National Theatre in 1997 and won the Olivier award that year for Best New Play as well as a Tony Award after premiering on Broadway later that year.
“Closer is a sad, savvy, often funny play that casts a steely, unblinking gaze at the world of relationships and lets you come to your own conclusions…Closer does not merely hold your attention; it burrows into you.” – NY Magazine
“A powerful, darkly funny play about the cosmic collision between the sun of love and the comet of desire.” – Newsweek Magazine
