UW-Eau Claire's Production of 'Betrayal'
to Open April 12 at Riverside Theatre

RELEASED: March 29, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's production of "Betrayal" opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the Riverside Theatre. Additional performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 13-14 and April 18-21 with a matinee at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 15.

"Betrayal," written by Nobel-laureate Harold Pinter and directed by professor of theatre arts Terry Allen, begins in the present and moves back in time revealing an extra-marital affair and the petty deceptions that accumulate to destroy three lives.

" ... as mesmerizing as a cobra," wrote Walter Kerr of the New York Times, the love triangle in "Betrayal" brings new insights to a classic story of love, friendship, lies and deception. The Play won the West End Award in London and the Drama Critics Circle Award for best foreign play.

Senior Melissa Briggs, Cottage Grove, Minn., will perform the role of Emma, with senior Michael Evano, Minneapolis, Minn., as Jerry, sophomore C.J. Krueger, Rochester, Minn., as Robert and senior James Boland, Brookfield, as a waiter, as well as assistant stage manager.

Senior Helen Bostock, Stanley, is assistant director and stage manager. Senior Becky Witt, Jefferson, will be assisting with props design and scenic design. Lighting design and scenic design are by assistant professor of theatre arts Kevin Gawley. Costume design is by Heidi O'Hare and sound design is by Allen and Art Gulig.
