Poster by Bryon Fear and Mark Ireson

by Harold Pinter

Directed by Mark Ireson

Performances: Tuesday 2nd to Saturday 6th June 2015, Bell Theatre


The action takes place in London and Venice between 1977 and 1968.




The cast and crew would like to thank: Carrie Andrews for rehearsal space and copious hospitality; Mark Gibson and Hazel Hindle for coming to the rescue with transportation; Lisa Thomas for her extensive knowledge of the SLT wardrobe; Gavin Parker for last minute lighting assistance; Anton Krause, our Theatre Committee rep; and, especially, all the volunteers in the bar, box office and front of house teams. SLT would fall apart without your hard work.


The music played between scenes was a selection from Glenn Gould's 1955 recording of JS Bach's Goldberg Variations


Some of the nice things that folk said about the production on Facebook:

Eddie Coleman: "A big BIG thanks to Mark Ireson and cast and crew for letting us watch a dress of Betrayal yesterday (we're on our hols this week so wouldn't have seen it). I don't think I'm betraying any saying that this is an excellent production of an excellent play. At the end I wanted more, it was that good. Book your tickets, tell your friends; Pinter at SLT - fab!"

Charlotte Benstead: "Was lucky enough to see a preview of Betrayal today! Mark Ireson directs the fabulous Steve, Daniel and Victoria as well as a lovely small role from Matthew - I didn't know it before but just read it is based on Pinter's own affair with Joan Bakewell - who knew 2 national treasures were up to that sort of thing back in the 1970's! It is a really good show, gripping stuff and the cast have a beautiful dynamic and take on (and succeed) in a great delivery of this notoriously tough author. Tip top - highly recommended and have a great run y'all!"

Simon Gleisner: "Well done to Mark Ireson and all the cast and crew for tonight's performance of Betrayal. A very nicely judged production with excellent performances all round. Intriguing, amusing and engaging. Go see it."

Kait Feeney-Nash: "So pleased to see the humour brought out. I have seen a number of Betrayal productions & some completely missed the humour. Well done!"

Audrey Lindsay: "Mesmerising performances."

Lily Ann Green Coleman: "Absolutely fab."

...and Sardines magazine had a lengthy review, which can be found here
