"A thrilling story told by a highly engaging cast..."

           - Sepy Baghaei, London Pub Theatres

"Close presents an evergreen situation – teenagers do disappear – made original by fresh thoughts and ideas. And despite the seriousness of the subject, in places it’s laugh-aloud funny."

           - Susan Elkin, Sardines Magazine

The new girl at school has disappeared.

 

It’s been three nights now, and no one knows where she went. Taken? Or vanished of her own accord.

 

As the nights drag on, six of her classmates attempt to unravel the mystery, piecing together fragments of their brief encounters with her, grappling with the enormous absence of someone they hardly knew.

 

But is someone saying less than they know?

 

CLOSE was shortlisted for the Patrick White Playwright’s Award and was developed by Playwriting Australia. This was its UK premiere.
