The plot revolves around two couples, Robert and Emma, and Jerry and the unseen Judith. Robert, Emma and Jerry become involved in a web of infidelity: Emma and Jerry conduct an seven-year affair, which Robert discovers in its fourth year. Robert then cheats on Emma. This play memory play uses the distortion of time to reveal how each character is emotionally isolated by their actions of deceit and self -gratification. Considered Pinter’s masterwork Betrayal uses this love triangle to create moments of awkward and strained encounters and brutal silence that get below the surface of social propriety and to the depths of human interaction.
Betrayal is a richly textured drama that exposes social pretense and unmitigated emotions that draws us into the same complex world we all inhabit and makes us believe simultaneously in the endurance and the transience of relationships and in the ecstasy and pain of intimacy.
