Town & Gown Players present a deftly told tale of infidelity in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal. The drama reveals the hidden emotions and veiled motivations of Emma (played by Terrell Austin), her husband Robert (Steve Elliott-Gower), and her lover Jerry (Allen Rowell), who is also Robert’s close friend. Local musician and actor Michael Brewer also makes an appearance. The nine short scenes move in reverse chronological order, beginning after the affair has ended and closing with the initial encounter that set it into motion, highlighting pivotal events along the way with Pinter’s typically spare but telling dialogue. Proceeds from the one-weekend-only Second Stage production directed by Gay Griggs McCommons will help support T&G’s light and sound booth renovation project.
8 p.m. (Aug. 22–23), 2 p.m. (Aug. 24). $10 (box office only). www.townandgownplayers.org
