Closer archiveDan and Larry are besotted by the enigmatic Alice, while Anna inadvertently meets Larry for a date in an aquarium. The lovers become entangled in web of deceit, insecurity and desire in a beautifully structured series of duologues which push the action forward, and occasionally back, towards an unexpected ending. Witty, obscene, modern and slick, Closer provides us with a surprisingly honest vision of sexual jealousy and desire, in a search for reality in 'one of the best plays of sexual politics in the language' Sunday Times. Winner of Best Comedy Award in the 1997 Evening Standard Awards. Winner, 1998 Olivier, BBC Award for Best New Play.
