Harold Pinter wrote Betrayal in 1978. The play tells the story of a classic three-cornered relationship in which Emma has been cheating on her husband Robert for seven years by having an affair with his best friend Jerry.

Pinter uses an unusually dramatic structure – the play begins at the end and ends at the beginning – to explore themes like loyalty, insincerity and self-deception. He presents characters who are caught up in the untenability of an all-consuming passion, who struggle against the inevitable mediocrity of their daily lives, who want to live grandly in a world that is too small. As if with a scalpel, he exposes the pride and longings, the lies and weaknesses of his characters, and, in that laconic and ruthless style at which he excels, succeeds both in glorifying and ridiculing love.  In this way Pinter elevates the prosaicness of human relations to poetry.

So shall I live, supposing thou art true,
Like a deceived husband; so love's face
May still seem love to me, though alter'd new;
Thy looks with me, thy heart in other place:
For there can live no hatred in thine eye,
Therefore in that I cannot know thy change.
In many's looks the false heart's history
Is writ in moods and frowns and wrinkles strange,
But heaven in thy creation did decree
That in thy face sweet love should ever dwell;
Whate'er thy thoughts or thy heart's workings be,
Thy looks should nothing thence but sweetness tell.
How like Eve's apple doth thy beauty grow,
If thy sweet virtue answer not thy show!

William Shakespeare, Sonnet 93

Bedrog (Betrayal) 
"Bedrog is intimate, scintillating repertoire theatre to enjoy with a possibly secret lover at your side." 
Els van Steenberghe, Knack.be, October 20th 2011 

STAN comes up to expectations in ‘Bedrog’ (Betrayal) 
"Tg STAN announced they would be staging a repertoire piece: Pinter’s Betrayal . And we got just what we were hoping for: a no-nonsense approach, a lively script and great acting. STAN through and through" 
Griet Op De Beeck, De Morgen, October 20th 2011

Pinter is given a new lease of life by tg STAN: The deceiver deceived
"... what is clear about this production is the mastery with which Pinter constructed the script. And that mastery is matched by the mastery of the people who made this production. It’s STAN at their very best."
Peter Haex, www.steeds.nu, October 24th 2011

TG STAN freshens up the Harold Pinter classic ‘Betrayal’ 
"In ‘Bedrog’ (Betrayal) STAN gives a classic an airing. What seems to be a series of trite conversations is in fact a stratified play about truth and lies." 
Wouter Hillaert, De Standaard, October 25th 2011

A bittersweet pleasure, unbearable lightness
" With Robby Cleiren as the hypocritical mug Jerry, who obdurately reproaches his duped friend for knowing what was going on but not telling him, Jolente de Keersmaeker as Emma and Frank Vercruyssen as Robert are very evenly matched as they perform all the registers between guilelessness and cynicism. They bounce the unbearable lightness of deceit back and forth, between each other and between the floor and the audience. A bittersweet pleasure."
Hanny Alkema, Trouw, November 4th 2011 

STAN provides a bold new take on Pinter’s most frequently performed play 
"... here we see a casual acceptance of the recognition that all human relationships are based on egoism. These three wonderful actors, who have no difficulty whatsoever in being pleasant and likeable, illustrate this with suspenseful and at times even dazzling acting." 
Hein Janssen, De Volkskrant, November 4th 2011 

Guileless betrayal 
"Stan’s Bedrog is a lecture on the finesses of precision acting at an extraordinarily high level" 
Loek Zonneveld, De Groene Amsterdammer, November 24th 2011

tg STAN Betrayal (Bedrog)
"Tg STAN leaves Pinter’s script in its full glory and, with the complicity of the audience, performs - as is always the case with prescience -knowingly. The game gives an extra dimension to this already shocking play about being in the know."
Evelyne Coussens, Zone 03, December 7th 2012

 short theatre 6 - Trahisons
"Even the lighting design gives the same meaning, veering gradually from diffuse light, under which all things should theoretically reveal their rightness and evidence, to warmer shades, intimate and pleasant illusion. The real strenght though, of this mise-en-scène that manages to entertain and to reflect with a fluidity of awesome intent, is another: the actors."
Renata Savo, la Repubblica, September 11th 2016
