Close to the bone? Too close for comfort? Patrick Marber's Closer, a smart study of sexual politics in the Nineties - winner of this year's Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy - opened to an avalanche of praise. Following its subsequent sell-out run in the Cottesloe, it has transferred to the Lyttelton where it continues to raise debate and hackles, particularly among women. After tonight's performance, Marber (above, who also directed) and his cast - Sally Dexter, Mark Strong, Neil Stuke and Liza Walker - will discuss the play and the production and answer questions from the audience.
