“Jamie Lloyd's epic #PinterAtThePinter season will conclude in suitably star-studded fashion. Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox will play the destructive threesome at the centre of what might be Harold Pinter’s best play (we did a vote in the office and it won so it's official). You're in for a tense time as this play works back through a seven-year romance in reverse order.”
“Revelatory revival from Jamie Lloyd of Pinter’s 1978 play inspired by his affair with the married Joan Bakewell. A stellar cast—Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Cox and Zawe Ashton—make this sing in surprising ways showing the damage that secret and lies do through a series of tiny reveals. Lloyd’s production is brilliant in the way it plays with space making almost sculptural connections and disconnections. A great end to the Pinter at the Pinter season, and highly recommended.”
With poetic precision, rich humour and an extraordinary emotional force, Betrayal charts a compelling seven-year romance, thrillingly captured in reverse chronological order. Described as “the greatest, and the most moving, of all Pinter’s plays” (Daily Telegraph), this production marks the culmination of the Jamie Lloyd Company’s ground-breaking Pinter at the Pinter season.
