Tickets are now on sale for the forthcoming Broadway revival of Harold Pinter’s 1978 drama Betrayal, starring stage and screen favorite Daniel Craig, his real-life wife, Oscar winner Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall. Directed by 10-time Tony winner Mike Nichols, Betrayal begins performances October 1 and is slated to play a limited engagement through January 5, 2014. Opening night is set for October 27 at the Barrymore Theatre.
Inspired by Pinter's seven-year affair with TV personality Joan Bakewell, Betrayal tells the story of Robert (Craig) and Emma (Weisz), a married couple with trouble brewing under the surface. Unbeknownst to Robert, Emma has been having a long-time affair with his best friend Jerry (Spall), who is also married.
The production will include scenic design by Ian MacNeil, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt and sound design by Scott Lehrer.
