By Harold Pinter
Directed by Paul Jepson

Emma is married to Robert. But for seven years, she’s been having an affair with Jerry, Robert’s best friend.

Betrayal begins at the end of the affair, and pursues an enthralling journey to its very beginnings. As memory reels backwards towards the moment the affair started, the lies tangle into a web of deception. Is Emma betraying her husband? Is Jerry betraying his best friend? Or are they all betraying themselves.

Of the countless eternal love triangles written for the stage, few have matched Harold Pinter’s gripping depiction of infidelity – as intricate as a spy novel with its cross and double cross.

Smart, darkly funny and full of yearning, this is one of Pinter’s most accessible and riveting plays.

“diamond-sharp writing and dramatic cunning”
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

“the greatest, and the most moving, of all Pinter’s plays”
THE TELEGRAPH

“Exeter Northcott’s return to producing in-house productions demonstrates their commitment… and audiences can expect a highly theatrical treat.”
