There's a whiff of Betrayal at San Diego's Globe Theatres. The Harold Pinter drama, which had a well-received revival on Broadway in 2001, arrives on the Cassius Carter Centre Stage Jan. 27-March 10 with Daniel Stewart, Pamela J. Gray and Christopher Randolph as the lovers' triangle.
1978's Betrayal traces a love affair from its end to its beginnings as best friends Jerry (Stewart) and Robert (Randolph) move from coldness to close friendship, Robert and Emma (Gray) change from weary married couple to happy honeymooners and Jerry and Emma move from broken-up adulterers to first-time lovers. Pinter is the author of The Caretaker, The Birthday Party, The Homecoming and Celebration.
Karen Carpenter directs. A former production stage manager on the Sunset Boulevard and Les Miserables national tours, she has since turned helmer, directing Pinter's Old Times with Julianne Moore for Huntington Theatre, Water from the Moon and the Globe's Vita and Virginia.
The son of film and theatre star Patrick, Stewart performed on Broadway in Not About Nightingales. Gray's credits include House Arrest, Hard Feelings and recent revival of Night Must Fall. Dimiter D. Marinov is the waiter.
