The actors were talented and did an excellent job. The theater space is very small, and the temperature of the room was a little too cold. I also found it somewhat distracting watching the actors move the furniture around to change the scenes.

The minimalists set was more than compensated by an excellent performance, particularly the performance of the two leading actors.
Highly recommended.

Description

Nobel Prize, Tony, and Olivier Award winner Harold Pinter is one of the most celebrated and influential playwrights in the English language. His masterpiece, Betrayal, is a dangerous, funny, sexy, and deeply personal journey backward–from the end, to the beginning of a seven year affair between Jerry and Emma, the wife of Jerry’s best friend. The play’s unique structure, with Pinter’s trademark economy of language and silence, sets the stage for a thrilling meditation on marriage, passion, trust, and friendship.
