A verbally understated (in that nothing is said that doesn't need to be and delivery is equally as important as what is being said) study of love, sex and modern relationship, Marber's play is about as dark as they come. It is less about love than it is desire, less about need than want. If you've seen the movie and thought it dark, the play is even more so. It's a different, darker (and in my opinion more satisfying) ending.
