Closer

by Patrick Marber

English Theatre Leipzig proudly presents the award winning drama CLOSER, an elaborate character study of two couples as they engage in a complicated web of temptation and fulfillment.

The plot revolves around infatuation and is the ultimate game of cat and mouse. All of the characters become obsessed with hurting each other and wreak some heavy emotional damage.

Will any of them be strong enough to bring this destructive sequence of events to an end? Ultimately, the characters all use sex and emotions as weapons; but has their desire to “win” at the game of love actually diminished their capacity to love?
