Following a successful run in London, Jamie Lloyd’s production of Harold Pinter’s play Betrayal has officially opened on Broadway. Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews.
Betrayal is a real gem from the Pinter collection, benefiting from the minimalist design and slick direction of this production – Charlie Cox’s performance is a real highlight.
In just six months, Jamie Lloyd’s creative team and ever-changing company of actors has utterly transformed our perspective on Harold Pinter.
More praise has always met the political paranoia and over-relished bullying aggression of Pinter’s other plays, long and short: Jame Lloyd’s Pinter season has been a triumph. But for me Betrayal was always going to be the treasure.
Tom Hiddleston stars in Jamie Lloyd’s revival of Harold Pinter’s play Betrayal. Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews…
Tom Hiddleston is back! And in excellent form in Jamie Lloyd’s revelatory revival of the 1978 Pinter classic Betrayal.
Jamie Lloyd’s terrific Pinter season, at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre, climaxes with a revival of Betrayal, arguably one of the writer’s more personal pieces and one of his most innovative and beguiling.
Hiddleston, Ashton and Cox deliver precise, layered performances in a production that grips with tension. I think Lloyd has saved the best to last in his Pinter at the Pinter season.
Betrayal is everything you could hope for. The Pinter at the Pinter season has set a very high standard for itself, but what a swansong this has turned out to be.
Two of the country’s most exciting young stars, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox, will Tom Hiddleston in The Jamie Lloyd Company production of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 5 March 2019 until 1 June (press night is 13 March) for a strictly limited season ending on 1 June, directed by Jamie Lloyd. The production forms the culmination of the historic Pinter at the Pinter season.

In Shakespeare’s battle-hardy tragedy, Caius Marcius is rebranded Coriolanus after defeating the Volscian army at Corioles.
James and Daniel are chalk and cheese, and very much in love. The unemployed photographer and Canary Wharf stockbroker are adorably domestic, but both are hiding secrets. When James’ uni mate and ex-girlfriend Olivia vengefully reveals one of them, this irrevocably opens the floodgates to the rest.
Shirley’s script, with its echoes of Hamlet, Othello and The Spanish Tragedy, is less philosophical and more action. Whilst this makes it easy to follow and immediately engaging, the characters are more generally more limited in their scope for interpretation.
