Cast joining Tom Hiddleston in Betrayal in London announced
From 5th March, Pinter’s play about two couples entwined in a story of infidelity will run in the West End directed by Jamie Lloyd, and following the conclusion of his huge Pinter at the Pinter season which saw all of the playwright’s one-act pieces performed.
As previously announced, Hiddleston plays Robert in Betrayal, while Fresh Meat actor Ashton will play Emma and star of Marvel’s Daredevil Cox will play Jerry. Tickets for Betrayal at the Harold Pinter Theatre are available now.
Zawe Ashton has been seen on television in series such as Fresh Meat, Not Safe for Work and Wanderlust. Her previous stage roles include the Jamie Lloyd Company productions of The Maids at Trafalgar Studios and Salome for Headlong.
Ashton said she was ‘thrilled’ to be part of ‘one of Pinter’s most personal pieces of work’, adding: ‘As a longtime collaborator of Jamie Lloyd, it’s so exciting to be rounding off such an epic season of Pinter’s work.’
Charlie Cox starred in the title role of the Marvel and Netflix series Daredevil, which began in 2015. On stage, he appeared in Lloyd’s 2008 production of the Pinter plays The Lover and The Collection at the then Comedy Theatre (now the Harold Pinter).
On returning to the West End, Cox said: ‘It feels particularly fitting and special to be working with Jamie on another Pinter play, as our production of The Lover and The Collection’in 2008 was amongst the last projects that Harold himself was personally involved with.’
Pinter 5 and Pinter 6 are currently in rep at the theatre as part of the Pinter at the Pinter season, before Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman bring the series of plays to a close with The Dumb Waiter and A Slight Ache from 31st January.
