BETRAYAL by Harold Pinter
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8 at 7:30pm
Directed by Jason Heil
Featuring Monique Gaffney, Mike Sears and Claudio Raygoza
The classic dramatic scenario of the love triangle is manifest in Pinter’s engaging character play, a mediation on the themes of marital infidelity, duplicity, and self-deception. Betrayal begins with a meeting between adulterous lovers, Emma and Jerry, two years after their affair has ended. During the nine scenes of the play, we move back in time, through the states of their affair, with the play ending in the house of Emma and Robert, her husband, who is Jerry’s best friend. We are excited to explore one of our favorite playwrights most compelling works.
