7 Towers Theatre Gets 'Closer'

Last year, the folks at 7 Towers Theatre company made a decision to try and focus on smaller, more intimate shows this season. The result of that decision is their current production of Closer, a four-character dramatic comedy about, as director Amanda Gass says, "human relationships and the way that people are kind of messed up and treat each other poorly."

The play covers several years in the lives of four people as the fall into and out of love with one another. The story skips ahead in time between scenes, letting the audience see important moments in the lives of the characters, a format that caused actor and sound designer David Boss to compare it to "a terrible highlight reel of four relationships, but done in a funny way."

Closer is onstage at the Dougherty Arts Center through August 2.
