Nominated for a 1999 Tony Award for Best Play -- and later adapted into the 2004 feature film starring Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen -- British actor-comedian-playwright Patrick Marber's Closer provides a cutting close-up on modern love. In contemporary London, four lives romantically intertwine over the course of four-and-a-half years in this densely plotted, stinging examination of love, lust and betrayal. This award-winning play has been translated into more than 30 languages, and has been a critical and popular favorite since it premiered in 1997. A deeply layered drama, Closer has been called "bruising and beautiful, shatteringly funny and devastatingly sad" by Variety magazine. Learn More
This production is suggested for ages 16 and up; it contains strong language and some sexual themes.
About the Ticket Supplier: Always-Already ProductionsAlways-Already Productions started out like any other budding graduate school friendship: brains deprived of "for-fun" literature and hard liquor. Two treasured plays were exchanged over tater-tots and whiskey [and gin]. Out of the liberated conversation--occasioned by Pirandello's "To Clothe the Naked" and Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"--came the cocktail-coaxed conclusion, that there was nothing stopping us from staging a production of our own. Having a strong mutual appreciation for theatre's ability to be experienced both as performance and as text, we decided that we would try to draw on whatever collective experience we had, and attempt to navigate a balance between the two. After some preliminary investigations into the general progression from bar to stage--presumptuous naïveté notwithstanding--Always-Already Productions was born, and we decided once and for all that our inaugural production would be Edward Albee's pièce de resistance.
Though the history of this company is still (always-already) being written, it was founded on the principle that the text is what provides the structure and framework upon which its staged manifestation is molded. We believe our textual approach in shifting medium allows for a unique interpretation and application of both dialogue, as well as stage directions/imperatives.
