Rolling Die Productions & 3S Artspace present the Patrick Marber play Closer.
Directed by Todd Hunter with lighting and set design by Quentin Stockwell.

This production of Closer is begins its tour with the Rochester Performing Arts Center  with a run in April/May of 2019. To build on that, we're excited to announce the Closer tour is extending to Portsmouth here at 3S for two weekends in August! 3S Artspace, RPAC and Rolling Die Productions are thrilled to collaborate together to be able to offer Closer at two major art spaces in two cities, servicing a wider theater audience, and supporting a longer production life for this exceptional show. 


Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love, sexual desire and betrayal. Dan, an obituary writer, meets Alice, a stripper, after an accident in the street. Eighteen months later, they are a couple, and Dan has written a novel inspired by Alice. While posing for his book jacket cover, Dan meets Anna, a photographer. He pursues her, but she rejects his advances despite their mutual attraction. Larry, a dermatologist, "meets" Dan in an internet chat room. Dan, obsessing over Anna, pretends to be her and has cybersex with Larry. They arrange to meet the next day at an aquarium. Larry arrives and so too, coincidentally, does the real Anna. This sets up a series of pass-the-lover scenes in which this quartet struggle to find intimacy but can't seem to get closer.

Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1999 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play.


"'Closer' is a sad, savvy, often funny play that casts a steely, unblinking gaze at the world of relationships and lets you come to your own conclusions…'Closer' does not merely hold your attention; it burrows into you."
--NY Magazine

"A brilliant and bracingly adult new play from Londonbruising and beautiful, shatteringly funny and devastatingly sad. The play's dialogue has a raw emotionality rarely heard in art or life. It cuts like broken glassfull of bitter, intelligent, unvarnished truth."  --Variety.

"A powerful, darkly funny play about the cosmic collision between the sun of love and the comet of desire." Newsweek Magazine. "In its cutting contemporary picture of sexual desire and emotional failure, 'Closer' is a brilliantly unusual virtual reality that rings true. The best new play on Broadway." --NY Observer.
