Closer

10/06/2016 - 25/06/2016 Closer

COMING to the Old Mill Theatre this June is Closer, written by Patrick Marber and directed by Trevor Dhu. The play uniquely blends elements of tragedy, comedy and melodrama and challenges audience perceptions at every turn.
Playwright Patrick Marber turns upside down the romantic notions of love and sex uniting two people as one and challenges the idealistic notion that total honesty is the best way to preserve a relationship.
As the four characters in Closer move in and out of relationships – and expose their individual bleak takes on those relationships – the audience sees their self-delusions and futile journeys to find what they really desire in life.
