Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter’s Betrayal traces the triangular relationships among Emma, Robert, and Jerry from the end of an affair to its beginning.
The Tampa Bay Times called TampaRep’s production “subtle and layered,” saying it “captures Pinter’s ambiguities and ironies” with standout performances from Emilia Sargent, Ned Averill-Snell, and Greg Thompson.
Creative Loafing agreed, saying “Evocative performances make Tampa Rep’s latest a worthwhile rendezvous. . . Emilia Sargent turns in a wonderful performance . . . Greg Thompson. . . makes the scenes in which he’s smitten with Emma just as utterly convincing as the segments in which their love has evaporated. . . the ever-surprising Ned Averill-Snell. . . turns in fascinating work as the cuckolded Robert.”
See why Betrayal won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play when it premiered in 1979 and has remained a constant on the stage ever since, including its most recent New York production with Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall.
“Betrayal is an exquisite play, brilliantly simple in form and courageous in its search for a poetry that turns banality into a melancholy beauty.” Jack Kroll, Newsweek
“the greatest, and the most moving, of all Pinter’s plays.” Charles Spencer, The Telegraph
