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
