In 1977 Emma meets up with Jerry in a pub. Emma is married to Robert, who is the best friend of Jerry, who was Emma’s lover. They haven’t been alone together for two years, but before that they were engaged in a passionate affair for seven years - deceiving their spouses, each other and, at times, even themselves.
In the course of the play’s nine scenes we move back in time, through those nine years and a labyrinth of betrayals. In one of his most accessible and personal plays, Pinter’s ambitious dramatic device takes the audience beyond the “what happens” of a conventional narrative to the far more intriguing “why” and “how”, as he explores the complexities of love, guilt and duplicity in this Olivier Award-winning modern classic.
