Directed by Nick Bagnall, the production will feature a return to the Crucible for Life on Mars star John Simm, who played Hamlet there last year, and reunites him with Tierney who played opposite him as Horatio.

Famously played backwards in time, Betrayal traces a seven-year affair between art gallery owner Emma (Aubrey) and literary agent Jerry (Simm), the best friend of her publisher husband Robert (Tierney), from its poignant end to its first illicit kiss.
