Betrayal is a drama published in 1978 by the British playwright and Nobel laureate (2005) Harold Pinter. This drama has a structure in which time moves back as the drama goes on. Although the story line is about an ordinary extra-marital affair involving two men and a woman, various techniques that Pinter presents confront the audience with the uncertainty of reality and perception.
