Pulitzer Nominee Christopher Martin to Helm Fall Revival of OLD TIMES in NYC

International director, composer and Pulitzer Prize-nominee Christopher Martin (also Founding Artistic Director of Classic Stage Company where he directed nearly 100 productions) is set to direct a NYC revival of the Harold Pinter play OLD TIMES which will run November 25th thru December 11th at the 'White Space' at Alchemical Theatre Laboratory (104 West 14 St.).

Martin's deliberately spare interpretation of the suspenseful Pinter drama will feature an international cast and comes 45 years after it was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Aldwych Theatre in London in 1971 (which Martin saw). He received a Pulitzer Prize nomination for his translation of the Heiner Müller text for Robert Wilson's The Civil Wars.

In OLD TIMES, Anna visits her old friend, Kate, at the converted farmhouse she shares with her husband Deeley somewhere on the English coast. Anna has never met Deeley. Or has she? Twenty years have passed since the two women last saw one another, and rivalry between Anna and Deeley soon ignites a dangerous game of chess, the presumed prize being Kate. In this production, the setting is as minimalist as the language, in which silence plays an equal part. A large empty space with three windows and two armchairs; the dead leaves scattered across the floor are no more than the collective souvenirs of the past.

The cast is Philip O'Gorman from Ireland, Danielle Shimshoni from Israel & Katarina Vizina from Slovakia.

The show is produced by Kristin Sgarro, Janine Hegarty & Philip O'Gorman.

OLD TIMES will run November 25th thru December 11th at the 'White Space' at Alchemical Theatre Laboratory (104 West 14 St.). Performances are Tuesdays-Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are $20 ($10 for students) and can be purchased online at www.thealchemical.com/upcoming.
