The UofL Theatre Arts Department opened “Betrayal,” Harold Pinter’s prize-winning drama April 13, the last production in the 2015-16 season.
This piercing character study, which plays with chronology, uses a love triangle to meditate on the themes of infidelity, friendship and loyalty.
“The audience will be very engaged by the complicated way the story is revealed. It’s an intriguing puzzle they get to trace,” said director and theatre arts professor Russell Vandenbroucke. “Humans love to solve problems and here we sometimes get to do so ahead of the characters. We have a great aptitude and curiosity for exploring challenges and I think this play taps into that.”
“Betrayal” runs through April 17 in Thrust Theatre. More photos from the production are available online.
