Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall star in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, directed by ten-time Tony Award-winner Mike Nichols. Betrayal is a strictly limited engagement, running 14 weeks only, through January 5, 2014 at the Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street). Opening night is Sunday, October 27.
Betrayal originally premiered at London’s National Theatre in 1978 and was immediately hailed as one of Pinter’s masterworks, winning the 1979 Olivier Award for Best New Play. Emma (Rachel Weisz) is married to Robert (Daniel Craig), a publisher, but she has long had an affair with Jerry (Rafe Spall), a literary agent and Robert’s best friend; as, in a brilliant device, time is regained, so the full complexity of their relationships comes to light.
