Last Call

WHEN A publisher's wife has an affair with his friend, the publisher hides his knowledge of the affair from his adulterous pal. From then on, the play unfurls through reverse chronology, opening with a rendezvous between the old lovers and closing with their meeting in the 1970s. Directed by Trevor Nunn, Harold Pinter's Betrayal (right) is spun by Imogen Stubbs, Anthony Calf and Douglas Hodge.
