Three characters get together: a man named Deeley; his wife, Kate; and Anna, a friend of Kate's whom she has not seen for twenty years. On the surface they seem to be reminiscing about past experiences, but the playwright's intriguing dialog sets up a situation where not all is as it appears ..."Written in 1970, Old Times is one of Mr. Pinter's most satisfying memory plays, with the careful combustion of its language and ... almost deranged humor." (DCTeatreScene.com)
Showcasing: Pierlisa Chiodo Steo, Catherine Pappas, Mark Grayson, Cecile Mihalich
