Whidbey Center for the Arts
About the project and the company
PRODUCTION: “Betrayal” by Harold Pinter
BETRAYAL an exquisite play, brilliantly simple in form and courageous in its search for a poetry that turns banality into melancholy beauty.” —Newsweek. “…a powerful expression of the chasm between recollection and reality, of the gaps between people who need to be intimate with each other.” —Village Voice.
A sharp look into the nature of romantic relationships, Harold Pinter’s Betrayal starts in 1977 when long time lovers Jerry and Emma meet after her marriage to her husband Robert dissolves, and then backtracks all the way to 1968 when their affair first began. As the years spin backwards, a complex web of secrets about the trio emerges and calls into question the nature of their intimacy — as friends, as partners, as spouses. A play about love, lust, and time, Betrayal poetically explores the rift between memory and reality.
