  • Overview
    The play deals with an affair that entangles a married couple, Emma and Robert, and their close friend Jerry (who is also married). The play is innovative in its particular uses of reverse chronology: the first scene takes place after the affair has dissolved; the final scene ends with the moment the affair begins.

    Betrayal is regarded as one of Pinter's major plays, featuring his characteristic staccato dialogue and oblique, veiled scenes of one-upmanship.
