Hiddleston at the Pinter
NOW ON SALE
After baffling the Twittersphere following a cryptic tweet, Tom Hiddleston has announced his stage return in Harold Pinter's Betrayal, the final work in the illustrious director Jamie Lloyd' Pinter at the Pinter season, celebrating the late playwright's iconoclastic influence on modern drama. Starring alongside him are Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox.
Following on from The Dumb Waiter/A Slight Ache, the last in the series of one-act plays that have been inhabiting the Harold Pinter Theatre for the better part of winter, Betrayal tells the story of an affair in reverse, and showcases Pinter in a poignant mood. Based on his own seven-year romance with Joan Bakewell, it is often regarded as one of his best plays, containing his trademark wit, observations and undercurrent of malice as the central couple; Emma and Jerry, navigate the stormy waters of infidelity.
Last seen on the West End in Coriolanus (via a special performance as Hamlet at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts), Hiddleston is a prolific performer whose career has seen him go from Olivier's Best Newcomer in 2008 to the lofty heights of Hollywood as mischievous villain Loki in the Marvel Franchise. But whether you know him as a God or a Danish Prince, its certain that Hiddleston is one of the finest actors of his generation and this is a not to be missed opportunity to see him in his element.
