ABOUT BETRAYAL

Drama by Harold Pinter

Directed by Dennis O’Donovan

One of Harold Pinter’s most notable plays and the one that most closely adheres to his own life, “Betrayal” masterfully examines the ripple effect of infidelity on two families.  The play begins in the present with the meeting of Emma and Jerry, whose adulterous affair of seven years ended two years earlier.  Thereafter, in a series of contiguous scenes, the play moves backward in time, throwing into relief the little lies and oblique remarks that, in this time-reverse, reveal more than direct statements or overt actions ever could.
