"The very capacity for love itself is sometimes based on betraying not only other loved ones, but even ourselves." (Robert Egbert – from a review of Betrayal)
Betrayal explores a seven-year affair involving a married couple, Emma and Robert, and Robert’s “close friend” Jerry, who is also married. Pinter’s compelling play uses reverse chronology to explore the levels of betrayal between the couples: the first scene takes place after the affair has ended, the final scene ends when the affair begins.
As a fine example of the kind of production for which Next Stage has a deservedly high reputation, Betrayal is an eagerly awaited addition to the outstanding programme of plays planned for the company’s 20th birthday year.
Staged in-the-round and directed by Next Stage’s Artistic Director Ann Garner, this masterful dissection of love and betrayal should prove a compulsive evening’s entertainment within the intimate setting of The Mission Theatre. Don’t miss it!
