Betrayal by Harold Pinter

Desire.... Deceit... Betrayal!
Harold Pinter's modern classic is a scintillating tale of friendship, love and adultery set in the world of writing and literature.
Jerry is having an affair with Emma! However, Emma is the wife of Jerry's best friend Robert! Will Robert ever find out? Will the affair test Jerry and Robert's friendship to breaking point? Are Emma and Jerry really in love or is it just...... Betrayal?

Journeying from a cosmopolitan London to Mediterranean Venice and back, moving backwards and forwards in time, Pinter's play captures the grand passions and the sly maneuverings of the human heart. Rumoured to be based on Pinter's alleged affair with BBC presenter Joan Bakewell this is the classic love triangle with a twist. Dramatically ironic and painfully funny this is Pinter at his best and is a must see.

Last of the Red-Hot Lovers By Neil Simon

It's Valentine's season with love and romance in the air and Rapture Theatre are touring their latest production, Last of the Red-Hot Lovers. The show is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Neil Simon's 60's classic about sex, love and seafood.

Barney Cashman married his high school sweetheart and now runs a fish restaurant. It seems the whole world is cashing in on the sexual revolution except him. Barney devises a plan to have one sweeping affair before life passes him by; seduce a woman at his mother’s apartment while she's at work. The results are both comic and touching as Barney learns a lot about women and even more about life. The zippy one-liners mixed with a liberal helping of pathos make the perfect recipe for a great night out.

About the Play

Lawson is the best collector in the business; operating in the seedy world of debt collection, he is at the top of his profession. However, when one of his clients commits suicide Lawson’s life is shattered irrevocably.
As the mystery deepens around the suicide, the noose tightens, the stakes are raised and Lawson and his colleagues are pushed into a deadly power game from which there can only be one winner. This mysterious play, which is both funny and shocking, will have audiences on the edges of their seats.
With the combination of Harold Pinter’s wit and power, mixed with the night time atmosphere and gritty detective story milieu of Taggart, this is bound to be one of the highlights of the theatrical year.
