London Classic Theatre production of Betrayal, by Harold Pinter, is to kick off the new season this week at Derby Theatre.

It can be seen there from September 5-7.

In betrayal, Emma is married to Robert, a publisher. But for seven years, she has been having an affair with Jerry, a literary agent and Robert’s best friend.

Betrayal begins after the end of the affair, and pursues an intricate, gripping journey back to its very beginning.

In a brilliant device, time is turned upside down as the play charts significant events in reverse.

A ruthless exploration of the complexity of the human heart, Betrayal is Pinter’s most accessible work, enthralling and provocatively layered.

Playwright, director, actor, poet and political activist, Harold Pinter was born on 10 October 1930 in East London. He wrote 29 plays including The Birthday Party, Old Times, The Homecoming and The Caretaker. In 2005, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died on Christmas Eve 2008.

This production is to be directed by Michael Cabot.

Tickets to see it are £10.50-£23.50, concessions £10.50-£21.50.
