BETRAYAL, Harold Pinter’s mesmerising masterpiece of relationships and adultery, stars Olivier Award winner Nancy Carroll (Father Brown, The Crown), West End star Joseph Millson (Love Never Dies, Dr Sam Pearson in Peak Practice), RSC regular Edward Bennett and Christopher Bianchi (Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol Old Vic).

BETRAYAL opens as Emma and Jerry meet for a drink, two years after their seven-year affair has ended. Emma has recently discovered that her husband, and Jerry’s best friend, Robert, has been betraying her for years and has retaliated by spilling the beans on her own affair. As secrets and lies unravel, time spools backwards scene by scene to the party where the first sparks of passion are ignited, placing the audience in the tantalising position of knowing more about what is happening than the protagonists do.

Tender, moving and widely considered to be Pinter’s most accessible work, this devastating dissection of a love triangle, presents a compelling portrait of both the relationship between the lovers and the competitiveness of male friendships.

Harold Pinter was one of Britain’s most influential dramatists, with a career that spanned 50 years. His plays include The Birthday Party, The Caretaker and The Homecoming.
