London. 1993 - 1997. Dan is a journalist. Alice is a stripper. Anna is a photographer. Larry is a doctor. Through a series of chance encounters, mistaken identities and anonymous flirtations in cyberspace, the lives of this quartet of strangers converge in a four-year dance of desire. From the first surges of besotted courtship to the last deceptions of premeditated betrayal, their tangled relationships chart the complex, hilarious and ultimately heartbreaking emotional transactions of a world where kindness is incompatible with honesty and LOVE is a four letter word. Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Patrick Marber's slick, searing and audacious comedy of sexual manners and morality has been described as the PRIVATE LIVES of the 1990's. CLOSER is a sharp, witty and lethal dissection of the workings of the human heart and a brutally candid anatomy of modern love.
