Description Deeley and Kate live in an isolated country house. Their quiet marriage is prised open by the arrival of Kate's old friend Anna, visiting after 20 years. Their reminiscences stir up unsettling images, and what begins as a game of after-dinner nostalgia turns into an eerie sparring-match, a darkly erotic triangle where the past becomes the present.

Since its first production in 1971, Old Times has come to be seen as one of the most important works by one of the English language's most important playwrights. A mesmerising and sophisticated play.
