What is Betrayal?
Betrayalis a Harold Pinter play, first performed at the National Theatre in 1978. The story concerns the role of love, lust and intimacy as relationships begin to crumble. Told in reverse chronological order, audiences meet Emma and Jerry at a pub for the first time since their extra-marital affair. As the scenes unfold, Betrayal taps into how their behaviour affected their marriages, with characters confessing and betraying the people closest to them while admitting their mistakes.
Since the first performance in 1978, Betrayal has been revived twice on London stages. In 1991, a cast including Bill Nighy and Cheryl Campbell performed this Pinter classic at the Almeida Theatre. Most recently, the show ran in 2011 at the Comedy Theatre, starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ben Miles.
