Description:

"Love and sex are like politics: it's not what you say that matters, still less what you mean, but what you do. Patrick Marber understands this perfectly, and in Closer he has written one of the best plays of sexual politics in the language: It is right up there with Williams' Streetcar, Mamet's Oleanna, Albee's Virginia Woolf, Pinter's Old Times, and Hare's Skylight."-The Sunday Times This student edition comes complete with a full introduction, plot synopsis, commentary, discussion of the film version, bibliography, and questions for study. It is the perfect edition for anyone studying the play at school or college. Patrick Marber also co-wrote the screenplay for Asylum (2005), directed by David Mackenzie, and was sole screenwriter for the film Notes on a Scandal (2006), for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
