State Theatre Company South Australia presents

26 Aug 2015 to 3 Oct 2015

1977. Emma is married to Robert. But for seven years, she’s been having an affair with Jerry, Robert’s best friend.

Betrayal begins after the end of the affair, and pursues a gripping journey back to its very beginning. In a brilliant device, time is turned upside down as the play charts significant events in reverse and mines the shadowy aspects of a love affair and its fallout to devastating effect.

Enthralling and intricately layered, the play provides a ruthless exploration of the complexity of the human heart. Winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature, Harold Pinter is famous for his probing of the darker sides of human emotion. Betrayal is rightly considered to be one of his great masterpieces and showcases all of his trademark wit and yearning.

Premiering in Adelaide before transferring for seasons in Melbourne and Canberra, Betrayal will see the team behind 2013’s Helpmann Award nominated production of Hedda Gabler, including the luminous Alison Bell, reunite to create one of the highlights of the 2015 theatre calendar.
