Closer is the third play written by English playwright, Patrick Marber. The play was premiered at the Royal National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre in London in 1997. It won the Evening Standard Best Comedy Award and later the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1998.

Closer made its North American debut at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway on 25 January 1999 where it ran for 172 performances on Broadway and won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play and was nominated for both Tony and Drama Desk awards.

Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Twelve scenes chronicle the love affairs, rivalries, seductions and betrayals of four characters (two men, two women), in a spare, intense style, sometimes coarse, sometimes obscene, but calling for real sensitivity and vulnerability in the acting.
