Old Times by Harold Pinter
Unifaun Theatre Productions bring this masterpiece about memories by Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter. Deeley and Kate are waiting for Anna, Kate’s old friend. Deeley wants to know more about his wife’s friend, Kate is aloof. Anna arrives and old memories stir.
“The past is what you remember, imagine you remember, convince yourself you remember, or pretend you remember.”
Like Pinter’s earlier plays, Pinter deals with bare essentials. There are only three characters – a man named Deeley, his wife, Kate, and Anna, a friend of Kate’s whom they have not seen in 20 years. Beneath the surface of their taut, witty conversation lurks suggestions of darkness, until the present is overwhelmed with intimations of some frightening past.
Directed by Chris Gatt. Cast features Mikhail Basmadjian, Laura Best and Pia Zammit.
Performance dates: 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22 March 2015
