BetrayalWitness the “eternal triangle”—wife, husband and wife’s lover— in Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” being performed at Moraine Valley Community College.

The Academic Theater production is April 29 to May 8, in the John and Angeline Oremus Theater, in the Fine and Performing Arts Center. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday performances are at 3 p.m. Tickets are $12 for the general public and $10 for seniors and students.

Pinter’s customary inventiveness and subtlety brings new insights to this timeless theme. “Betrayal” is the story of a love affair told backwards. The play starts with lovers Jerry and Emma meeting two years after their seven-year affair has ended. Each of the nine scenes takes the audience back through the stages of their affair and finishes with their first “erotically charged” meeting. But betrayal is a three-way street!

This production is being directed by Dr. Craig Rosen, professor of Theater and Academic Theater Program coordinator. The cast list includes:

  • Kevin Ross, of Hickory Hills (Jerry)
  • Jonathan May, of Summit (Robert)
  • Rose Stovicek, of Berwyn (Emma)
  • James Smith, of Alsip (Waiter)
