Closer

September 13, 2018 - September 23, 2018

Cumberland Theatre & Creative Arts Center

Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely-plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Twelve scenes chronicle the love affairs, rivalries, seductions, and betrayals of four characters (two men, two women) in a spare, intense style -- sometimes coarse, sometimes obscene, but calling for real sensitivity and vulnerability in the acting.Closer opened at London's Royal National Theatre in 1997 won the Olivier award that year for Best New Play. After its premiere on Broadway it also picked up a Tony Nomination, won the New York Drama Critics Award for Best Foreign Play, and was adapted into a screenplay in 2004 for a major film featuring the all-star cast of Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen, and Jude Law. It has since been produced in more than 200 cities in over thirty different languages around the world.
