Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Dan, an obituary writer, meets Alice, a stripper, after an accident in the street. Eighteen months later, they are a couple, and Dan has written a novel inspired by Alice. Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1999 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play. "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.
