The Story:
CLOSER tells the story of Dan, Alice, Anna and Larry, four individuals whose lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. All of us, every day, for better or worse, are living the consequences of the choices we have made, the decisions that have brought us to this moment in time. CLOSER examines the knife-edge moments in life where a single decision can greatly impact not only our own future but the lives of those around us. These breathless, gut instinct, fire in the belly moments are embodied beautifully with rapid-fire dialogue, can’t-look-away discomfort and a searing picture of the things we are capable of under the guise of lust and love.

Casting Requirements:
The roles of Alice, Anna, and Larry have already been cast. The role of Dan is available for a male who can play mid-30’s. Dan is an obituary writer with dreams of becoming a novelist. He meets Alice, a self-described waif and a stripper, and begins a relationship with her. Through this relationship, he finds his voice as a writer and writes his first novel, based on Alice’s life. The impending publication of the novel leads him to meet Anna and he becomes infatuated with her. Dan lacks confidence and looks to the women in his life to make him feel whole. He is a romantic and is driven both by a need for love and a need for sex. He is restless and unsatisfied in his life, constantly looking for reassurance as a writer and a lover. Actors should be aware that this play involves strong language and overtly sexual themes.
