Closer tickets

Patrick Marber’s intoxicating cult classic

Lyric Hammersmith stages a radical and bold new production of Parick Marber’s Olivier Award-winning Closer, marking 25 years since the play premiered in London.

This classic play about four strangers falling in and out of love is Marber’s most famous work. Set in London at the end of the 20th century, Closer is the story of Dan, Alice, Anna and Larry, who become entangled in a series of overlapping and interwoven romantic and sexual relationships.

Exploring the risks and triumphs of passion, Marber’s play premiered in London in 1997 and was awarded the Olivier Award for Best New Play. It has since been performed in various countries, and was adapted into a film starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen.

At the Lyric Hammersmith, the Closer London cast includes Jack Farthing as Dan, Ella Hunt as Alice, Nina Toussaint-White as Anna, and Sam Troughton as Larry.

Experience a dazzling, intoxicating story with Closer play tickets, as strangers and lovers circle each other in Marber’s best-loved work. It runs at Lyric Hammersmith for a strictly limited season this summer.

I'm a fan of the movie starring Jude Law, Julia Roberts, Clive Owen and Natalie Portman so was keen to see the stage play on which the film 'Closer' is based. It's been 7 years since I last saw it at the Donmar and I was keen to see this new version. The play tells the story of four strangers falling in and out of love entangled in a series of interwoven relationships with one another. Their relationships become deceitful and extremely complicated when the man from one couple meets the woman of another..... At times comical, other times intoxicating, this didn't dissapoint and was well worth watching!

The play is what draws in the crowd. This version has some interesting performances and some problems. Alice (Ella Hunt) is incredibly beautiful but I'm not convinced by the choice made for her character to sing some songs - it seems to just get in the way of the actress being able to fully portray the character of Alice through her acting. For me not innovative, just reductive.

The play remains a classic and well worth seeing. This production was problematic. There were four "actors" creditied as a "chorus" who hung about at the back and moved props to no added effect - simply there, it seems, to include the trainees from the Lyrics' own acting programmes. Alice sings some songs - very well actually, but distracting from the fragility in the character that are essential to the play. The performanc of Dan was seriously dreadful. Sam Troughton was the saving grace - a seriously studied and magnetic performance. He gets two stars all to himself.

Undoubtably, the play is the main star here - along with Sam Troughton, who was superb. When he was on stage it all worked - everything made sense and the relationships were believable. A stunning performance form Sam. Unfortunately, this did not hold true when he wasn't on stage.
