Betrayal is a play written by Harold Pinter in 1978. Critically regarded as one of the English playwright's major dramatic works, it features his characteristically economical dialogue, characters' hidden emotions and veiled motivations, and their self-absorbed competitive one-upmanship, face-saving, dishonesty, and (self-)deceptions. Inspired by Pinter's clandestine extramarital affair with BBC Television presenter Joan Bakewell, which spanned seven years, from 1962 to 1969, the plot of Betrayal interrogates different permutations of betrayal relating to a seven-year affair involving a married couple, Emma and Robert, and Robert's "close friend" Jerry, who is also married, to a woman named Judith.
Weisz starred as Gilda in Welsh director Sean Mathias's 1994 West End revival of Noel Coward's 1933 play Design for Living at the Gielgud Theatre. Her other stage work includes the role of Catherine in the Donmar's production of Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last Summer and Evelyn in Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things at The Almeida Theatre (also film) at its, then, temporary location in London's Kings Cross. In 2009, she played Blanche DuBois in Rob Ashford's Donmar revival of A Streetcar Named Desire.
Daniel Craig made his Broadway debut in A STEADY RAIN opposite Hugh Jackman. Craig succeeded Pierce Brosnan as filmdom's new James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale, the 2008 Bond release Quantum of Solace, and 2012's Skyfall.
