Harold Pinter’s play Betrayal is coming to Broadway after a very successful run in the West End. The play will run for only seventeen weeks at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Tom Hiddleston (Thor), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat), and Charlie Cox (Daredevil) will reprise their roles, and Jamie Lloyd will return as director. The previews are set to begin on August 14, and the play will officially open on September 5.
Written in 1978, Betrayal is about Robert, his wife Emma, and his friend Jerry. Emma and Jerry had an adulterous relationship, and the play starts years after their affair ended. Each scene goes back further in time to finally show the start of their relationship.
Rehearsals seem to have started already, as evidenced by a picture that Tom Hiddleston shared on his Twitter account of him in front of the theatre.
