Closer is Patrick Marber's tale of love, truth, and sex. The lives of four distinct but different people intertwine over the course of several years, creating relationships and destroying lives as they break each other's hearts all in the search of that one thing they can't seem to grasp: truth. Join us as Dan, Alice, Anna, and Larry try to navigate this crazy thing called life and find happiness and intimacy in a world of lies and the internet. The cast will include Miles Snow, Lilly Nelson, Laurel Ullman, and Brian Fisher.

Burning Coal Theatre Company is one of Raleigh's intimate, professional theatres. Burning Coal is an incorporated, non-profit [501 (c) (3)] organization. Burning Coal's mission is to produce literate, visceral, affecting theatre that is experienced, not simply seen. Burning Coal produces explosive reexaminations of overlooked classic and modern plays, as well as new plays, whose themes and issues are of immediate concern to our audience, using the best local, national and International Artists available. We work toward a theatre of high-energy performances and minimalist production values. The emphasis is on literate works that are felt and experienced viscerally, unlike more traditional linear plays, at which audiences are most often asked to observe without participating. Race and gender non-specific casting is an integral component of our perspective, as well as an international viewpoint.
