Olivier Award-winning actress Kristin Scott Thomas returns to the stage in Harold Pinter’s famous tale of conflicting memory and sexual tension, Old Times.
Locked away in a secluded farmhouse, Kate, Deeley and Anna reminisce about their early days together in London, but as their contradictory memories clash, the past begins to feel vividly present.
This production of Old Times, directed by Ian Rickson, will see Scott Thomas and co-star Lia Williams swap between the roles of Kate and Anna, with Rufus Sewell providing an ever present Deeley.
Scott Thomas previously appeared in Pinter’s Betrayal at the same theatre, and in The Seagull at the Royal Court, winning an Olivier Award for her performance as Arkadina. Her film credits include Gosford Park, The English Patient and The Horse Whisperer.
Sewell, who was seen on TV screens in 2012 in Parade’s End, boasts London credits including Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Arcadia, while Williams is a Pinter regular, having appeared in several productions of the Nobel Prize-winning playwright’s pieces, including The Homecoming, The Room, Celebration, The Lover/The Collection and The Hothouse.
