Patrick Marber

Patrick Marber was born in London in 1964. He began his career as a stand-up comedian, then began writing and appearing in the British radio and television show Knowing Me, Knowing You.

His first play, Dealer's Choice, debuted at London's Royal National Theatre in 1995, before transferring to the West End.

Marber's second play, Closer, opened in London in 1997 and quickly became an international hit, produced in more than 100 cities and over 30 different languages across the world.

In addition to directing his own plays, Marber has directed productions of Craig Raine's 1953, Dennis Potter's Blue Remembered Hills, David Mamet's The Old Neighborhood and Harold Pinter's The Caretaker.

In 2000, he acted in the West End revival of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow.

He has won numerous awards for his radio, television and theatrical writing, including a BAFTA for Best Comedy Program and a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play for Closer, which also garnered the London Critics Circle Award for Best New Play and the New York Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Play.

Closer is Marber's first produced screenplay.
