Betrayal

It’s 1977. Emma is married to Robert, a publisher. But for seven years, she’s been having an affair with Jerry, a literary agent and Robert’s best friend.

Betrayal begins after the end of the affair, and pursues a gripping journey back to its very beginning. In a brilliant device, time is turned upside down as the play charts significant events in reverse and mines the shadowy aspects of a love affair and its fallout to devastating effect. Enthralling and intricately layered, the play provides a ruthless exploration of the complexity of the human heart.

Winner of 2005’s Nobel Prize for Literature, Harold Pinter is famous for probing the darker sides of human emotion. Betrayal is rightly considered to be one of his great masterpieces, showcasing his trademark wit and yearning.

Canberra’s own luminous Alison Bell returns to the Capital and the award-winning team from State Theatre Company of South Australia The Importance of Being Earnest 2014) unite to create one of the highlights of the 2015 theatre calendar.

Betrayal is at the Canberra Theatre Centre August 19-22.
