Harold Pinter; dir: Gil Lazier.
The Cell Theatre:
Memory and reality collide in Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter’s nostalgic and haunting play, Old Times, as three friends recall their relationship from twenty years prior. What do their memories tell us and which interpretation of the past do we believe? Old Times is an intimate and highly charged exploration of whether we can ever really know another person, or even ourselves. Pinter’s classic play, featuring his distinctive poetic style, is directed by Artistic Director Michael Kahn, recently called “one of the best directors in America” (DC Theatre Scene), and marks the STC debut of Holly Twyford, hailed by Washingtonian as “one of the busiest and best actors in town.” Clive Barnes called Old Times “a joyous, wonderful play that people will talk about as long as we have theater.”
