“Anam Theatre’s production brought its audience closer still to the play’s engaging issues and biting wit.”

“Anam approached the play as a period piece, but the production revealed its enduring relevance. The company capitalised on the play’s potential to ask who we are and who we might become in an age increasingly saturated by fragmented information, image-obsession and media personae.”

“By tightly regulating the production’s pace and energy, O’Toole’s direction skillfully negotiated the play’s emotional peaks and troughs, offering moments of striking intensity balanced by well-timed humour.”

“Directed by Sarah O’Toole, this intricate tale of lust and sexual yearning is meticulously staged with every damning glance, yearnful touch and tension fuelled pause.”

“Anam Theatre’s production of Closer is thoroughly enjoyable with quick-witted dialogue, powerful on-stage chemistry and a smartly designed set. I eagerly await future productions from Anam and further frank portrayals of humanity and its flaws.”
