Drew DeCaro, above left, Julie Rowe and Kevin Bergen star in the American Stage production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, the story of a seven-year adulterous affair that is told backward. It's the first Pinter work the theater has produced. The English playwright, awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 2005, is famous for his cryptic dialogue and pregnant pauses. "What's brilliant about Pinter are all the things that go unsaid and the economy of language,'' says director Todd Olson.

Betrayal opens Friday and runs through June 22 at American Stage, 211 Third St. S, St. Petersburg. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. There is a preview tonight. $22-$35; student rush tickets are $10, 30 minutes before curtain. Pay what you can nights are Tuesday and June 10. (727) 823-7529;
