NEvent: Closer

Get Closer

Let’s be honest. Can you resist the temptation of a scantily clad, sultry siren, who shakes her bonbon at you, while dancing around a pole?

We’re talking about a cheating heart – the ugly subject of betrayal, which forms the crux of “Closer”.  And we don’t mean the motion picture, but rather the original stage play that gave rise to it. Written by British playwright, Patrick Marber, “Closer” is a modern romance that is more than just a character study about four strangers. It takes an honest look at how two couples get entangled in a web of sexual desire and betrayal.

The play is being performed in Hong Kong for the first time by Stylus Productions, which has put on refreshing shows since its inception in 2006. Be prepared to be visually wowed, as Stylus, together with Theatron and fashion designers from Kanchan Couture and Menu, attempt to bring the fashion world and the world of stage together.

Your other half will most definitely leave the theatre realizing that not all men are scum.
