Harold Pinter's Betrayal
Presented by Another Country Productions, Boston
May 20 - June 5, 2010
Often called the most accessible of Pinter’s plays, Betrayal is rich with layers of subtext and inchoate desire. “Since starting Another Country in 2003,” states Lyralen Kaye, Artistic Director, “I have wanted to change audience ideas of what great theatre can be. In a Meisner-driven aesthetic, audiences aren’t presented with a story; they watch it being lived in front of them with a level of authenticity often associated only with film. It’s not about star power so much as it is about ensemble and connection. Betrayal, with its nuance and levels of emotional complication, could not be better served than by this technique." Director Gail Phaneuf adds an interpretation of infidelity as fantasy and intoxication, lifting the play to a roller coaster of emotion for the audience. Don't miss what promises to be a unique theatrical experience!
