2018/19 Season

By Harold Pinter
Directed by Kathryn MacMillan
Now - February 17, 2019

The heart wants what the heart wants, and so we tell each other – and ourselves – the lies needed to get it. This sophisticated drama is a devastatingly honest exploration of love, sex, marriage, and friendship. Told backwards from the end to the beginning, Harold Pinter's narrative masterpiece will move and astonish you.

Running time is approximately 95 minutes, including one brief intermission.

News & Reviews

"A subtle, powerful rendition of Harold Pinter's delicious, sinister love triangle. Betrayal is [Pinter's] alluring, witty drama written in 1978 and one of his most accessible plays; it is about who knew what when and who said what had been thought unsaid. This is a world of innuendo and sinister ambiguity. Delicious." –Philadelphia Inquirer  more

"Unique, muli-layered, and astounding... the acting is first-rate." –Beyond My Backyard  more
