Sex, dishonesty and betrayal come to the fore as strangers become lovers – and lovers become strangers – in a play at the Old Mill Theatre this June.
 
Written by Patrick Marber and directed by Trevor Dhu, Closer explores the raw nerve of pain that comes with the territory of love as the romantic lives of four characters intertwine in contemporary London.
 
Over four years, Dan, Alice, Larry and Anna pursue their own desires as lives collide and fates change in an instant with each character crossing the line between love and sex and then lust.
 
Closer won the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for best new play and has been translated into 30 languages and produced in more than 200 cities across the world.
 
In 2004, Marber adapted the play into a film featuring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen. He also wrote the screenplay for Notes on a Scandal.

Please note: the play features strong adult language and themes.
