The University of Texas-Pan American presents "Betrayal," a play by Harold Pinter, Feb. 27 through March 3 at the Jeffers Theatre in the Communication Arts and Sciences Building.

Directed by Eric Wiley, performances are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Due to the play's nature, children under third grade will not be admitted.

The box office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and an hour before each performance. Tickets are $10 for reserved, $5 for general admission, and University students and staff get two free tickets with each ID. Tickets for students and faculty from other high schools and colleges are $3.

The four-character show has an interesting twist in that it is written "backwards." In the first scene, the couple breaks up, and as the play progresses, the audience travels back in time through the various stages of the relationship to the start of the affair.

Pinter, a British playwright, is known for his handling of relationships. Now in his early 70s, he came on the British and American theatre scene in the 1960s.

The box office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and one hour before each performance. For more information, call 956/381-3581.
