Jamie Lloyd's production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, starring Tom Hiddleston, is set to extend its West End run due to demand.

Running at the Harold Pinter Theatre, and forming the final part of Lloyd's Pinter at the Pinter season, the play was scheduled to run until 1st June.

Having held its opening night on 22nd March to rave reviews, including five stars from Mark Shenton on, the production will now run in London until 8th June, with tickets on sale here on Monday 25th March from 10am.

Betrayal sees Hiddleston's character Robert, Zawe Ashton's Emma and Charlie Cox's Jerry entangled in a love triangle and web of lies and betrayals. It is one of Pinter's best-known works, and renowned for its inventive structure which has the play work through the scenes in reverse chronology.

In his review for London Theatre, Shenton said the production was " a magnificent, searing account of Pinter's most autobiographically charged play", which "brings Lloyd's classy season of Pinter at the Pinter to an end with a fine flourish".

Betrayal comes at the end of the Pinter at the Pinter season, during which seven productions consisting of all of Pinter's short plays were performed by an all-star cast which included Martin Freeman, Danny Dyer, Janie Dee, Lee Evans, Tamsin Greig, Robert Glenister and John Simm throughout the run.

Betrayal is at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 8th June.

Betrayal tickets are available now.
