2015 - 2016  37th Anniversary Season



by Patrick Marber

In Closer, Patrick Marber has created a brilliant exploration into the brutal anatomy of modern romance, where a quartet of strangers meet, fall in love, and become caught up in a web of sexual desire and betrayal. As the London Observer noted, "Closer has wired itself into the cultural vocabulary in a way that few plays have ever done."
