Overview

In Closer, Patrick Marber has created a brilliant exploration into the brutal anatomy of modern romance, where a quartet of strangers meet, fall in love, and become caught up in a web of sexual desire and betrayal. Closer is being hailed as one of the best new plays of the nineties, and as the London Observer noted, it "has wired itself into the cultural vocabulary in a way that few plays have ever done."

when ups handed me the packaage i litterally ripped it opened and read it all the way through. i was glad that when i saw the movie the lines and story were almost identical which is good b/c i hate when the two mediums are compleately different. well anyways it was a great read, iloved it!!

This play is quite amazing. My theatre class recently read it, and no one quite knew what to say. The characters are all the same in some fashion, and yet they are all so different. The irony comes in since none of the characters are really close at all.
