Betrayal at the Essaïon Théâtre

Betrayal_ad_50x85final Behind the giant form of the Centre Pompidou, at the end of a narrow side-street are the doors to the Essaïon Théâtre. The 100 seater theatre is located in the cave of the building, hosting Tiresies Productions' rendering of Harold Pinter's Betrayal.

VINGT is offering two pairs of free tickets courtesy of Tiresies' Productions.  Email us at news (at) vingtparis.com if you'd like to attend.

Betrayal is probably Pinter's most accessible work, but it offers plenty of opportunity for this London based production company to re-interpret the structure and form of the play. 

The plot's chronology runs backwards and as the affair between the three characters is revealed, Pinter captures, with delicacy and precision, the shifting perception of betrayal, and the nature of love and friendship turned cold. 

Tiresias.Productions press release - As the memories and glimpses of the affair get pieced together throughout the performance, so the play becomes an epic experience", and in this reworking it is "framed by the use of projection and film." 

It promises to be an original performance and the intimate Essaïon Théâtre will provide an atmospheric location to witness the unravelling of the nine year affair.
