Editorial Reviews

NY Times
...marvelous scenes, packed with suppressed tension, torn loyalties and confused, unspoken feelings...
Newsweek
BETRAYAL is an exquisite play, brilliantly simple in form and courageous in its search for a poetry that turns banality into melancholy beauty.
Village Voice
...a powerful expression of the chasm between recollection and reality, of the gaps between people who need to be intimate with each other.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS EBOOK!!! I bought this via Nook eBook, but Barnes and Noble sold me a completely different and INCORRECT eBook instead. I clicked on "Betrayal" by Harold Pinter in my Nook library only to open "The Betrayal" by Helen Dunmore instead. Incredibly shocked, disappointed, and CHEATED. Complete waste of money, plus the dirty feeling of having been cheated. DO NOT BUY.
