Local theatre group Foolhardy Actors Company will present its first drama of 2016, Harold Pinter’s brilliant and enthralling Betrayal, at Beccles Public Hall on March 10 at 7.30pm.
This production follows their acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.
Foolhardy co-founder and producer Sharn McDonald said: “On the surface, Betrayal is about an affair but as with all Pinter’s plays, there is so much more going on.
“The Winter’s Tale was a huge production for us, Betrayal is much smaller in scale but no less vast in the scope and range of its emotions.
“We want to produce work that challenges us and forces us to continually raise our game”..

Director Will Isgrove said Betrayal was probably Pinter’s most accessible work and is a great introduction to his style and themes.
“The dynamics between the characters are so well observed. We’re very lucky to have such a talented cast to tackle this,” he said. “It’s about how our loves and our losses build up and warp over the years, and about how complex life can become. It’s really insightful but also incredibly funny and engaging.”
