On 6th April, the hugely successful run of Harold Pinter’s Old Times at the Harold Pinter Theatre, which has fully recouped all its costs, ends as scheduled.
“A compulsive production of Pinter’s tantalisingly suggestive play”
Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Rufus Sewell and Lia Williams, Old Times is directed by Ian Rickson, designed by Hildegard Bechtler, with lighting by Peter Mumford, music by Stephen Warbeck and sound by Paul Groothuis.
Old Times is produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions, Bob Bartner & Norman Tulchin, Rupert Gavin, 1001 Nights and JFL Theatricals/Tanya Link.
Locked away in a secluded farmhouse, Kate, Deeley and Anna reminisce about their early days together in London but, with conflicting memories and underlying sexual tensions, the past suddenly feels vividly present.
Kristin Scott Thomas and Lia Williams alternate the roles of Kate and Anna, with Rufus Sewell playing Deeley. A detailed performance schedule is available on the show’s website, www.oldtimestheplay.com.
Old Times has been the first of Pinter’s plays to be performed in the newly renamed Harold Pinter Theatre, and marks the fifth Pinter play that Sonia Friedman Productions (SFP) has produced in the West End in recent years, succeeding Celebration, The Dumb Waiter, No Man’s Land and Betrayal.
“A first rate revival. Richly intriguing. Superb.”
