What do you think is the worst thing about the truth?


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?

By turns unnerving and darkly funny, Close is a tightly-wound mystery about guilt both real and imagined.

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


NOTE that There will be a 'Post show discussion’ with the cast and playwright Kit Brookman after our Monday 12th performance.
This is free and all are welcome to attend.


Like watching a casually Australian version of the great French neo-classicist Racine. The surface is restrained, but something is burning fiercely underneath.” - John McCallum, The Australian, on Kit Brookman’s Small and Tired.
