ZAWE ASHTON AND CHARLIE COX JOIN TOM HIDDLESTON IN BETRAYAL (12 JANUARY 2019)

Two of the country's most exciting young stars, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox, will join Golden Globe, Olivier and Evening Standard Award winner Tom Hiddleston in The Jamie Lloyd Company production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 5 March 2019 (press night 13 March) for a strictly limited season ending on 1 June, directed by Jamie Lloyd. The production forms the culmination of the historic Pinter at the Pinter season.

With poetic precision, rich humour and an extraordinary emotional force, Betrayal charts a compelling seven-year romance, thrillingly captured in reverse chronological order. The complexities of the human heart are explored in this, "the greatest, and the most moving, of all Pinter's plays" (The Daily Telegraph).

Zawe Ashton will play Emma. Like Pinter, Ashton was born in Hackney, London. Known for her roles in television sitcom Fresh Meat, the comedy series Not Safe for Work, Wanderlust and the forthcoming Velvet Buzzsaw, Zawe starred in The Jamie Lloyd Company production of Jean Genet's The Maids at Trafalgar Studios and played the title role in Lloyd's production of Salome for Headlong.
Zawe Ashton said: 'I'm so thrilled to be part of the journey into the heart of one of Harold Pinter's most personal pieces of work. As a longtime collaborator of Jamie Lloyd, it's so exciting to be rounding off such an epic season of Pinter's work.'

Charlie Cox, who plays Jerry, is best known for the leading role in Daredevil for Marvel, Tristan Thorn in Stardust, Jonathan Hellyer Jones in The Theory of Everything and Owen Sleater in HBO's Boardwalk Empire. On stage, he appeared in the 2008 production of The Lover & The Collection, directed by Jamie Lloyd at the Comedy (now Harold Pinter) Theatre, the title role in The Prince of Homburg at the Donmar Warehouse and Nick Payne's Incognito in New York.

Charlie Cox said: 'I am so excited to be returning to the West End and, indeed, the Harold Pinter Theatre after over ten years, and to be collaborating once again with the brilliant Jamie Lloyd. It feels particularly fitting and special to be working with Jamie on another Pinter play, as our production of 'The Lover and The Collection' in 2008 was amongst the last projects that Harold himself was personally involved with.'

Pinter at the Pinter is the unprecedented season of Harold Pinter's work, marking ten years since the Nobel Prize winner's death. The season celebrates the most important playwright of the 20th century in the theatre that bears his name. Currently playing are the critically-acclaimed productions of Pinter Five and Pinter Six, starring Celia Imrie, John Simm, Jane Horrocks and Rupert Graves, amongst others. Still to come is the unmissable comedic double-bill, A Slight Ache and The Dumb Waiter, which form Pinter Seven and star Danny Dyer, Martin Freeman, John Heffernan and Gemma Whelan. Pinter Seven will play from January 31st for 27 performances only.
