By Harold Pinter. Melbourne Theatre Company presents a State Theatre of South Australia Production. Southbank Theatre, The Sumner. 26 August – 3 October 2015.
Emma (Alison Bell), married to Robert (Mark Saturno), and Jerry (Nathan O’Keefe), married to Judith (never seen), have an affair. The play begins, however, with all passion spent: their affair is cold and over and only awkwardness and deceit linger on. Betrayal is the story of that affair, but told backwards so that, from the start, the question is not ‘what happened’ but ‘how’.
