: Jerry is in love with Emma, and Emma is his best friend’s wife: but there is more than one betrayal in this play as we observe the shifting sands of power in love, friendships and work. Empathic, voyeuristic and wryly funny, Betrayal takes us back in time, absorbingly dissecting a seven year affair, scraping away the layers from the pathos of its end to its passionate beginning. Described as “the greatest, and most moving of all Pinter’s plays where pain and loss are explored with poetic precision”, it is also a reminder that betrayal is never-ending and that the one deceived forever haunts the imagination.
