A powerful twist on `Betrayal'

Theater review

May 24, 2007|By J. Wynn Rousuck | J. Wynn Rousuck,sun theater critic

Referring to betrayal, a character in Harold Pinter's play of that name comments, "Not much more to say on that subject." Maybe not, but the Nobel Prize-winning playwright certainly found a different way to say it.

Betrayal, Pinter's 1978 chronicle of a romantic triangle -- a husband, his wife and his oldest friend -- unfolds in reverse, moving from the postmortem of the affair to its instigation.

If you go Betrayal runs through June 24 at Everyman Theatre, 1727 N. Charles St. Tickets: $18-$30. Information: 410-752-2208 or everymantheatre.org.
