Following on from the success of Our Country’s Good, which was staged back in May, The Play’s The Thing theatre company return to work on Wednesday with the Harold Pinter masterpiece, Old Times.
Plenty of you will know already the story waiting to unravel, but for those of you new to Pinter’s perfection, here’s the plot: ‘At a remote farmhouse Anna pays an unexpected visit to Kate, her old flatmate, now married to Deeley.
‘They reminisce about old times in London 20 years ago. But all is not as it seems.
‘This darkly erotic, haunting and puzzling play reveals a game of power and possession as memories unfold and are used used as weapons of sinister manipulation.’
A truly terrific cast will be at play too, all of whom have worked with some of the finest directors around.
“It really is a terrific cast,” reiterates producer and director Rosemary Hill, “We had an overwhelming number of actors wanting to audition.”
Performances of Pinter’s play – which was originally put to the stage in 1971 by the RSC – begin on Wednesday at Stantonbury Theatre and carry through nightly to Saturday (Oct 18) at 7.30pm.
An additional matinee performance is also booked for the Saturday, at 2.30pm.
