The balance of complex psychological drama, pervasive melancholy and acid humor is riveting.

Why See Betrayal?

Emma is married to Robert, a publisher who has no idea that his wife has been having an affair with his best friend Jerry, a literary agent.

Moving backwards in time the full complexity of their relationships comes to light and its effects on them all.

Starring real life couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, together with Rafe Spall, Pinter's dark Masterpiece is revived in a new staging by  Tony Award-winning producer Scott Rudin (The Book of Mormon, The Testament of Mary, Death of a Salesman), under the direction of Tony and Academy Award-winning director Mike Nichols (Death of a Salesman, Spamalot, The Real Thing).
