Betrayal AND A Delicate Ship
by Filigree Theatre

May. 20 - May. 21 (2017)

"Betrayal" by Harold Pinter and the Austin premiere of "A Delicate Ship" by Anna Ziegler for The Filigree Theatre's 2017-2018 inaugural season. Both will be directed by Elizabeth V. Newman.

Betrayal begins in 1977, with a meeting between adulterous lovers Emma and Jerry, two years after their affair has ended. During the nine scenes of the play, we move back in time, through the states of their affair, with the play ending in the house of Emma and Robert, her husband, who is Jerry's best friend.

In A Delicate Ship a haunting love triangle triggers an unexpected chain of events in this poetic play. In the early stages of a new relationship, Sarah and Sam are lovers happily discovering each other. Sarah and Nate know everything about each other, best of friends since childhood and maybe something more. But when Nate shows up unannounced on Sarah’s doorstep, she’s left questioning what and who she wants in this humorous and heartbreaking look at love, memory, and the decisions that alter the course of our lives.
