Harold Pinter revival receives positive reception

20th June 2011

The West End revival of Harold Pinter's 1978 play Betrayal has received positive reviews, with Kristin Scott Thomas' lead performance garnering significant praise.

Ian Rickson's new production of the marital infidelity drama, which co-stars Douglas Henshall and Ben Miles, is currently showing at the Comedy Theatre and was described as a 'masterpiece' by the Daily Telegraph in a five-star review.

The play, which follows the course of an affair backwards in time over the space of nine years, was given four stars by the Independent, which said Scott Thomas gives a performance of 'exquisitely nuanced emotional vulnerability and pain'.

Meanwhile, the Guardian's four-star review said the play's themes of pain and loss were 'explored with poetic precision', with Henshall's Jerry displaying a 'defeated solitude'.

It is Scott Thomas' first appearance in the West End since she starred in Rickson's production of Chekhov's The Seagull at the Royal Court Theatre in 2008, a role which won her the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award for best actress.
