Closer at the Lyric theatre

July 14 - August 13

‘I need you. I can’t think, I can’t work, I can’t breathe. We are going to die. Please…save me.’

Dan and Alice. Anna and Dan. Larry and Anna. Alice and Larry.

In the chaos of London; four strangers meet, fall in love and fall apart as desire turns to heartbreak.

Closer is the Olivier award-winning play of the hit film. In a radical new staging by Clare Lizzimore this funny and uncompromising modern classic cuts to the quick of human connection and the cost of risking it all for intimacy.

In a city out of lockdown, the play is as searing today as it ever was in its exploration of love, sex and the fragility of the human heart.

Closer brings together a captivating cast with Jack Farthing, most recently seen as Prince Charles in Pablo Larraín’s critically-acclaimed film Spencer (Shoebox Films), playing Dan; Scottish BAFTA nominee and Dickinson’s (Apple TV+) rising star Ella Hunt in her stage debut, playing Alice; Nina Toussaint-White, best known for her role in the Emmy-nominated BBC series The Bodyguard, playing Anna; and Sam Troughton, who has performed extensively on stage and the screen including David Fincher’s recent biographical drama Mank (Netflix) and the hit HBO/Sky Atlantic miniseries Chernobyl, playing Larry.

The production also features a chorus, including Kane Feagan, Georgia-Rose Oliver, Sam Purkis and Wilf Walsworth who are part of SPRINGBOARD, a ground-breaking, free two year-training programme, launched in 2022 by the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre with the aim to nurture the next generation of performers with unrivalled theatre-based training for those currently underrepresented in theatre.
