Two former lovers, Madame de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont, take pleasure in seducing others - and telling each other all about it.

Discarding tiresome lovers, ruining the reputation of a young girl or destroying the marriage of a dutiful wife is pure entertainment...

But what happens when their own turbulent emotions come into play? And how far are they willing to go for revenge?

With the support of:

A Harold Pinter Revue

The Finn-Brit Players present a selection of seven sketches and Betrayal, a full length play, premiering this November at Teatteri Jurkka:

Betrayal directed by Stephen Porter
More than just a play about adultery & deception, Betrayal is about the endurance of lies and the effect they have on friendships and trust. Emma has been having an extramarital affair with Jerry, the best friend of her husband Robert. How will they keep it secret from Robert, and how much does Robert actually know...?

Sketches directed by Joan Nordlund
Pinter's observations on life are never more apt and to the point than in his short sketches. Regardless of whether the setting is the factory manager's office, an all-night café or a couple's living room, the characters communicate - or fail to communicate - in true Pinteresque fashion.

A Harold Pinter Revue is a guest performance at Helsinki's Teatteri Jurkka, Vironkatu 7.

Performances on November 29th and 30th at 19.00
December 2nd and 4th at 19.00, and December 6th at 14.00 and 19.00

Moonlight & A Slight Ache by Harold Pinter

Moonlight & A Slight Ache

This June we will be staging a double-bill of two one-act plays by Harold Pinter:

Moonlight is a moving play about dying, disconnection, loss, and the yearning for communion; what we were and what we become. It is also a play about fathers and sons, and about deadlocked wedlock. It is full of recurring themes and of sudden mood changes. There is word play in the title: the thing about moonlight is that it’s the last light you see before total darkness; it’s a very brief, black intense light that fades all too soon.

In A Slight Ache, Edward and Flora are occupied with their usual concerns: enjoying the garden at their country house and a good breakfast. But they are also bothered by the man selling matches outside in the street. Who is he and where does he come from? Should they ask him to step inside to explain himself?

Showtimes: 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13 June 2009 at 19:00, a guest performance at Q-Teatteri's Puoli-Q, Tunturikatu 16, Helsinki. Tickets €10.
