Harold Pinter’s ‘Betrayal’ presented by Mile Square Theatre

mm


Darkly humorous and charged with emotion, Betrayal explores marriage and infidelity among the entangled trio of Robert, Emma, and Jerry. Robert and Jerry are best friends and partners in a publishing firm. But an affair between Emma (Robert’s wife) and Jerry creates a tense world of deception and mistrust. Famous for its structured timeline reversal, Betrayal cinematically unravels the plot, ingeniously using dramatic irony to build tension.

MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor says of the show, “It has been a long-standing dream of mine to direct this piece. This is one of the Nobel Prize-winning Harold Pinter’s masterworks. I’m excited to work again with Dena Tyler (CBS’s Bull), who played Kari in our production of The Pavilion. She will be teamed up with MST favorite Matthew Lawler (ABC’s The Family) and Aidan Redmond (The Cripple if Inishmaan on B’way). These three actors have what it takes to mine the deep emotional undercurrents of Pinter’s writing.”
