Deeley and Kate's frosty but well-ordered relationship is pushed to the brink of destruction with the arrival for dinner of Anna - Kate's friend of twenty years ago. Nostalgia can be a dangerous game, and what begins as a sport of harmless after-dinner reminiscence and flirtation rapidly turns into a terrfying psychological sparring-match of control and submission. Dazzling wordplay and deadpan humour propel events towards a shattering climax. Funny, sophisticated and downright disturbing, Old Times is one of the most theatrically elegant works from the pen of 'our greatest living playwright'.
