Thought-provoking, Intense, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You like more thought-provoking and serious plays that draw parallels to real relationships, focusing more on the script than the set.

Don't see it if You prefer more visual, light-hearted plays

London Theatre
March 13th, 2019

This is a magnificent, searing account of Pinter's most autobiographically charged play ... and it brings Lloyd's classy season of Pinter at the Pinter to an end with a fine flourish.

Funny, sharp, oddly nasty, and memorably anguished, Lloyd’s Betrayal is fully faithful to a theatrical landmark.

It is Betrayal as I've never seen it before, and like this entire season, it bathes Pinter in a brilliant new light.

The coolness of it all means that some of the play’s emotional potency is diluted, but it’s always gripping – and superbly performed, particularly by Hiddleston.

Crowning his superlative six-month Pinter season at this address, Jamie Lloyd directs an exceptionally thoughtful and searching revival of this time-reverse play.

The London Evening Standard
March 14th, 2019

This sparse, elegant production closes Lloyd’s revelatory and handsomely cast season of Pinter’s shorter pieces in the theatre that bears the playwright’s name.
