Donmar Warehouse



by Patrick Marber

12 February 2015 – 4 April 2015

‘Patrick Marber’s most famous play still dazzles… David Leveaux’s coolly controlled revival’
Daily Telegraph

‘Still has the power to wound… it’s also still very funny’

‘Patrick Marber’s play is as powerful and pertinent as ever’


On its premiere in 1997, Closer won Olivier, Evening Standard and New York drama Critics’ Circle Awards. Since then, the play has been produced in more than 200 cities across the world. David Leveaux now brings this most intimate of plays to the Donmar stage.

Dan rescues Alice. Anna photographs Dan. Larry meets Anna online. Alice rescues Larry. This is London at the end of the twentieth century, where lives collide and fates change in an instant.

Strangers become lovers and lovers become strangers…
