Pinter's BETRAYAL presented by Actors Theatre of San Francisco
"The past is what you remember, imagine what you remember, convince yourself what you remember, or pretend you remember." -Harold Pinter
Nobel Prize winning dramatist, Harold Pinter, explores the themes of marital infidelity, duplicity and self-deception through the classic story of the love triangle. Robert and Emma, and Jerry and the unseen Judith become involved in a web of infidelity: Emma and Jerry conduct a seven-year affair, which Robert discovers in its fourth year...
This 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, while making us believe in the endurance and the transience of relationships, and in the ecstasy and pain of intimacy.
Featuring Christian Phillips, Frank Willey and Lindon Young.
