Closer, the Olivier award-winning play, is a funny and uncompromising modern classic which cuts to the quick of human connection and the cost of risking it all for intimacy. Directed by Clare Lizzimore (Bull, One Day When We Were Young) in a radical new staging of Patrick Marber’s (Notes on a Scandal, Dealer’s Choice) iconic play. Runs at the Lyric Hammersmith from 14 July – 13 August 2022.
"I need you. I can’t think, I can’t work, I can’t breathe. We are going to die. Please…save me."
Dan and Alice. Anna and Dan. Larry and Anna. Alice and Larry.
In the chaos of London; four strangers meet, fall in love and fall apart as desire turns to heartbreak. In a city out of lockdown, the play is as searing today as it ever was in its exploration of love, sex and the fragility of the human heart.
