Remaining time: 

LAST CHANCE TO SEE KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS, DOUGLAS HENSHALL AND BEN MILES IN BETRAYAL

Ian Rickson’s critically acclaimed production of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Douglas Henshall and Ben Miles, will end its scheduled run at the Comedy Theatre on 20 August 2011 having recouped its investment.

                                                                                                                

“I’ve always rather liked Jerry.  To be honest, I’ve always liked him rather more than I’ve liked you.  Maybe I should have had an affair with him myself.” 


Sometimes you’ll find there can be three people in a marriage……  Over a period of nine years, we are shown the high price of passion and the damage inflicted by desire. Harold Pinter’s play explores how our loves and our losses echo and accumulate through time.


Written by Harold Pinter in 1978, the world premiere of Betrayal took place at the National Theatre, directed by Peter Hall with a cast comprising Daniel Massey, Michael Gambon and Penelope Wilton and went on to win the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play.   In 1983 David Jones directed the Academy Award and BAFTA nominated film of Betrayal with Patricia Hodge, Jeremy Irons and Ben Kingsley.

Betrayal is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.

Thandie Newton is set to perform this autumn in a revival of Ariel Dorfman's play Death and the Maiden which will open at the Comedy Theatre in October.
