Humorous, Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you're a Pinter fan, like psychological thrillers, are a fan of stylish staging, spare design, & great acting. Fantastic production!

Don't see it if you want fluff, an outright comedy (though there's lots of humor), or a show that moves quickly.

Great staging, Riveting, Intelligent, Well written, Incredible acting

See it if you enjoy seeing actors more known for pop culture roles in a powerful and well written piece. You have a love for real acting!

Don't see it if you are fans not of the actors, but of their previous roles. You dislike very emotional plays regarding "cheating" in marriage. Read more

CRITIC’S PICK "Tom Hiddleston in a Love Triangle Undone by ‘Betrayal’: Mr. Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox portray three friends in flux in Jamie Lloyd’s revelatory interpretation of a Harold Pinter classic."

Time Out New York

3/5 Stars "Pinter's bone-dry, stiff-lipped tale of infidelity relies upon the audience's faith: It effectively asks that we take its word that these characters are interesting, and invest in them accordingly. But what if we don't? What if these three people...what if they merely bore us?"
