About Closer

Alice. Anna. Dan. Larry.

Four strangers caught in a destructive square dance where partners are swapped, lies are told and desire faces off with betrayal.

After 24 years, Closer, a cult classic by Patrick Marber returns to La Boite to get under the audience’s skin once again.

Artistic Director Courtney Stewart will direct an all-star Queensland cast in this critically acclaimed work that blends classical tragedy, comedy and melodrama in a contemporary and relatable setting.

The Olivier award-winning work follows the lives of out-of-towner Alice, photographer Anna, obituary writer Dan and dermatologist Larry over several years as they meet, bond, separate and move on.

Described as “bruising and beautiful”, Closer offers a confronting reality about how adults approach relationships.

Closer turns its intricate focus on sexual politics, examines the myths of love and romance and dissects the inevitable fall-out when adults cross the lines between love and lust.

A modern classic, 2024 marks 20 years since the film adaptation starring Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Jude Law and Clive Owen hit cinemas and 27 years since the searing play premiered at London’s Royal National Theatre.
