The cast of Betrayal at the Comedy theatre is outstanding:  one of our favourite actresses, Kristin Scott Thomas superb as the "thinking mans fantasy" Joan Bakewell, the definitely not good-looking Douglas Henshall as the incredibly sexy Harold Pinter, and handsome Ben Miles as the cuckolded (but also cuckolding) husband.  True to life how the men seem  so reasonable and rational about their infidelities whilst the unfaithful wife appears irrational and emotional about her affair whilst in fact is equally justified (or unjustified as the case may be) in her unfaithfullness.  Loved the fact that the play has not aged but is REAL theatre - real life re-enacted.  The genius of Pinter!
